TAMPA —Visiting Tampa Bay Tech, fueled by a strong first quarter and excellent defense, defeated neighboring King.
Both of the Titans' scores came in the first quarter.
Deon Cain connected with freshman Trey Fullwood for 43 yards, and Deon Thompson punched it in from 3 yards.
After that, the Titans defense was the story. King failed to move the ball with any consistency.
The victory wasn't pretty, said Tampa Bay Tech coach Jayson Roberts, whose team faces Armwood next.
"I think a game like this was really good for our team heading into the Armwood game next week," Roberts said. "Armwood is a great team, so we know that we have to be more disciplined than we were (Friday)."
