TAMPA — Going up against one of the best offenses in the county, Leto's defense was already in for a test against Alonso and quarterback C.J. Bennett. Leto didn't do itself any favors, turning the ball over five times in a 43-14 loss Friday night.
Bennett's third pass went for a touchdown, and the Ravens cruised from there. Alonso (3-1) took advantage of a Leto (1-3) fumble in its own end zone that resulted in a safety two possessions later. In all, Alonso forced three fumbles and intercepted Jeremy Deering twice.
Bennett completed 15-of-27 passes for 189 yards with two scoring passes to Jesse Anaya. He added a rushing TD as well. Cody Verrelli ran for 165 yards and two TDs.
Deering ran 54 yards for a TD in the first quarter and later threw a 60-yard TD to Antwon Howard.
