Football: Plant 56, Riverview 6

TAMPA — Plant let everyone know it is still a defending state champion Friday night. The Panthers scored 41 unanswered points against Riverview in the first quarter, rested the starters for the second half and completely overmatched the Sharks 56-6.

After an arduous start to the season, the Panthers (3-1) used this game to get ready for Armwood next week.

Plant started its 41-point quarter with a Phillip Ely 80-yard touchdown pass to Austin Aikens. The Panthers then scored a defensive touchdown by Scott Greacen, a James Wilder 40-yard TD run, an Antonio Crawford punt return for a score, a defensive TD by Drew Madhu, a safety and another Ely pass to Wilder. The lone bright spot for Riverview (0-4) was Drake Pickford's 92 yards rushing.
