Football: Plant 42, Chamberlain 7

TAMPA — Plant has had some highs and lows this season, but seems to be hitting its stride at the right time. The Panthers clinched their sixth-straight district title with a 42-7 thumping of Chamberlain.

"I'm very proud of the kids," Plant coach Robert Weiner said. "Six in a row is really something. Not to get too philosophical, but we have learned as much from our losses as we have from our wins this year."

Plant quarterback Phillip Ely was clicking most of all. The senior went 16-of-19 for 304 yards and five touchdowns. At one point, he completed 11 passes in a row.

Running wasn't a problem for the Panthers (7-2) either. In just the first half of action, James Wilder Jr. had 94 yards with a score.

Chamberlain (2-8) got its only score on a 9-yard pass from Mitchell Norton to Will Whiteside in the fourth quarter.
