Football: Durant 28, Sickles 6

PLANT CITY — Je' Twan Smith and Jarmarlon Hamilton each ran for a pair of touchdowns to lead Durant.

The Cougars improved to 5-2 with their fourth consecutive win. Sickles fell to 4-3 after losing for the third time in four weeks.

Smith, who ran for a team-high 131 yards on 22 carries, opened the scoring for the Cougars with a 29-yard run in the first quarter.

Hamilton scored on a 4-yard run in the second quarter, and Durant led 14-0 at halftime.

Sickles was limited to a pair of second-half field goals.

The Durant defense held Carey White, who rushed for a career-high 254 yards last week against Boca Ciega, to 34 yards on 17 carries. "Our defense basically stopped the best running back in the county," Smith said.
