Football: Tampa Bay Tech 28, Plant City 13

PLANT CITY — Deon Cain rushed for two touchdowns and passed for one as Tampa Bay Technical (7-3) topped Plant City (4-6) 28-13 on Friday night.

Before the Raiders ever took an offensive snap, Plant City committed two defensive penalties and a false start. But Plant City produced a red-zone defensive stand that forced a Titans to turn the ball over on downs. Tampa Bay Tech turned it over on the next drive by muffing a punt.

Cain, who scored on runs of 3 and 6 yards, found Richard Benjamin for an 80-yard touchdown as the first half came to a close.

The special teams bounced back in the third quarter as Tajee Fullwood returned a kickoff 83 yards for a score.

Nick Rodriguez threw two 10-yard TD passes for Plant City.
