Plant City 28, Bloomingdale 0

VALRICO — Plant City's defense backed quarterback Bennie Coney's four-touchdown performance in a district game to keep Bloomingdale winless. Coney had two first-half touchdown passes of more than 20 yards.

The Raiders were held scoreless until the final minutes of the first half. Chris Herald's lost fumble resulted in a four play, 63-yard drive capped by Coney's 23-yard touchdown to Michael Harris. The Bulls failed on a fourth-down conversion in the final minutes of the half. Plant City took over 65 yards from the end zone and as time expired Coney threw a 45-yard TD to Lamarlin Wiggens to give the Raiders a two-score edge.

Neal Petree intercepted Coney in the third quarter and broke free before tripping. After the mistake, Coney rebounded to score twice more, once on a run.
