Football: Plant City 29, Freedom 7

TAMPA — It didn't take long for Plant City's Dazmond Patterson to make his presence known.

The 5-foot-8 senior running back took the opening play from scrimmage 69 yards for a touchdown. He would finish with three scores on the night with two more coming on receptions as he was just too fast for the Patriots to grab hold of.

Patterson's offense and Freedom's lack there of allowed the Raiders to coast in a sloppy game.

The game was so sloppy, there were a total of 40 penalties. At one point, things got so chippy that the game was delayed as the officials talked to both sides on the field.

Freedom, which lost its opener 36-0 to Durant, tried three different quarterbacks but couldn't score until linebacker Max Orr returned a fumble 35 yards late in the game for its first touchdown of the season.
