Football: Tampa Bay Tech 38, Chamberlain 14

TAMPA — Just as Chamberlain appeared to be on its way to a blowout win against Tampa Bay Tech, two things happened.

Standout Chiefs running back Xavier Johnson left in the second quarter with heat exhaustion and cramps. Then a rash of turnovers and penalties broke out.

Eight Chamberlain turnovers and a host of penalties helped Tampa Bay Tech score 38 unanswered points for a 38-14 road win in Class 7A, District 7.

Johnson's 56-yard touchdown run and defensive back Jermaine Gilyard's interception return for a score gave Chamberlain a 14-0 lead. But Tech defensive lineman Kadesh Reaves returned a fumble 72 yards for a score to tie it at 14 and Aaron Midthus had two touchdown runs and a TD pass as the Titans pulled away.
