Football: Plant City 69, Strawberry Crest 6

PLANT CITY — Strawberry Crest is just down the road from Plant City. But the Raiders proved the programs are miles apart.

Bennie Coney completed his first eight passes, and the senior finished 16-of-22 for 270 yards and three touchdowns and added 88 yards rushing.

"We approached this game like we were playing Plant, not Strawberry Crest," Coney said.

However, Plant City lost its starting safety, Sam Green. Derrick Anderson returned a fumble 31 yards for a late touchdown. But Green was hurt during the celebration. The game was delayed 20 minutes while medics attended to Green's left leg. His status was unknown.

"He's the captain of our defense," Coney said. "We hope he's back, but it doesn't look good."
