TAMPA — Plant quarterback Phillip Ely passed for 131 yards and four touchdowns as the Panthers piled up 391 total yards of offense.
The Panthers' rushing attack put in a good effort as well, totaling 239 yards and two scores. Antonio Crawford and James Wilder each had a touchdown and combined for 143 yards.
Ely's favorite target was Allen Sampson, who finished with five catches for 94 yards and two touchdowns. Plant scored on its opening drive, capped by Ely's 11-yard pass to Sampson, and never let up.
Chamberlain, which had two players ejected in the second half, only mustered 102 yards total offense and five first downs against the tough Plant defense. The Chiefs were further hurt by two fumbles and an interception.
