Football: Durant 36, Freedom 0

PLANT CITY — Quarterback Nick Fabrizio rushed for three touchdowns and 204 yards as Durant rolled to a 36-0 win over Freedom.

Jamarlon Hamilton dashed 18 yards for a score on the Cougars' third play. But Fabrizio stole the show on the ground, scoring his first touchdown, a 20-yarder, just 2:42 later for a 15-0 lead.

"My offensive line really deserves the credit," Fabrizio said. "They opened the holes for me all night long."

He added a 65-yard run in the third quarter and an 85-yard run on the second play of the fourth quarter.

"Fabrizio can run," Durant coach Mike Gottman said. "He did a great job once he got into the open field and never looked back."

Sophomore Jonathan Jones added a late 19-yard touchdown run on his only carry.
