Hernando Christian 45, Central Florida Christian 14: Hernando Christian's Ian Townsend returned two of his three interceptions for touchdowns to lead the Lions (2-0) to a rout of Central Florida Christian (0-2). Junior Jeremy Knight ran for 216 yards, while senior quarterback David Rotteveel finished 9-for-15 for 188 yards and a touchdown, avoiding any sacks or interceptions.

East Bay 17, Durant 3: Neither Durant nor East Bay were spectacular for the first three quarters until Brandon Braithwaite's 47-yard fumble return set up an East Bay touchdown late in the third. The TD, an 11-yard run by Andre Simpson, sealed the game for the Indians.

East Bay's 237 rushing yards were fewer than Chaz Burrows had by himself last week against Riverview when he racked up 258. The team spread the ball around, utilizing every member in the wishbone formation. Coach Brian Thornton described the running game as "perfect."

Spoto 26, Bloomingdale 12: VALRICO — Spoto had 165 yards rushing, with standout Tim Randolph claiming 149 of those. Randolph scored on a 66-yard rush, which was the turning point of the game, giving his team a 12-0 lead in the second quarter after two failed kick attempts. "I give credit to a great block from my wingman and also to Coach (Dale Caparaso) for his excellent conditioning workouts," Randolph said.
