PLANT CITY — Patton Chillura passed for 201 yards as Jesuit improved to 3-0 Thursday.
Miles Bennett scored on a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and Anthony Harrell added a 1-yard touchdown run in the second to give the Tigers a 13-0 lead at the half. Chillura set up both scores, connecting on a 42-yard pass to Ricky Puls on Jesuit's first scoring drive and a 62-yard pass to Harrell to set up the second touchdown.
"Getting Harrell back is great," said Jesuit center Robbie Amor," and nobody works harder than Miles."
The Jesuit defense continued its stingy ways, pressuring quarterback Nick Fabrizio all night and holding him to 38 yards passing. Derrick Friga made two critical interceptions to snuff out potential Durant (1-2) scoring drives. Jesuit has gone six consecutive quarters without allowing a score.
