Football: Durant 49, Chamberlain 0

PLANT CITY — After last week's emotion-charged win over Plant City, Durant coach Mike Gottman was concerned about a letdown for Friday's game against struggling Chamberlain (2-4).

Turns out there was nothing to worry about as Durant remained unbeaten with a dominating 49-0 win. The Cougars (6-0) notched their third shutout of the season.

"I was very worried about it," Gottman said, adding that the opening 66-yard scoring drive "set the tone."

That nine-play drive resulted in the first of two Zach Hooper touchdown runs. But it was backfield mate Jamarlon Hamilton who put up the most impressive numbers, rushing for 132 yards and four touchdowns. The defense forced three turnovers, two safeties and totaled three sacks.
