Plant 49, Gaither 7

TAMPA — Junior Allen Sampson burned his former teammates with three touchdowns and senior quarterback Aaron Murray threw for 272 yards and four scores as the Panthers (1-1) routed the Cowboys (0-2) at Cowboy Stadium.

Sampson, who transferred to Plant from Gaither this year, caught six passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns — all in the first half — and scored on a 70-yard punt return.

"There was a lot of emotion, but we treated this like a regular game," Sampson said.

Murray went 12-of-22, throwing touchdowns of 20 and 41 yards to Sampson, 14 to Orson Charles and 33 to DeAndre Queen. Murray scored once as well.

The Cowboys, who played without top running backs Jarvis Giles and Cary White, have been outscored 94-20.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    MADEIRA BEACH — The kids lined up single file, snow cones in hand, a procession of sweaty, excited grade schoolers watching Chasten Whitfield throw a cast net.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
