Football: Gaither 20, Plant City 7

TAMPA — Joel Paredes returned the second-half kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown for the visiting Cowboys. Plant City played without lineman Jordan Prestwood, a I-A prospect who sustained a concussion in practice this week.

Gaither (3-4) snapped a 7-7 tie when Paredes raced untouched down the middle of the field. Plant City (4-3) played giveaway after that with four fumbles and two interceptions. Dalton Gilson added two field goals.

Dazmond Patterson gained 107 yards on 19 carries as Plant City outgained Gaither 268-181. The Cowboys scored on their first series as Shug Oyegunle hit Carlo Perello on a 21-yard pass. A Bennie Coney 5-yard pass to Javonte Sykes pulled the Raiders even.

After a Gaither touchdown pass was nullified by a penalty, Plant City drove to the Gaither 4 in the final minute of the first half before Coney fumbled.
