Preseason football: Hillsborough 15, Plant City 7

PLANT CITY — Jakarius Crittenden ran for a game-high 83 yards and a long scoring run as Hillsborough beat host Plant City 15-7 in a preseason game Friday night.

With starter Trevor Steinke out with a broken leg suffered this summer, Crittenden seized his opportunity. Ahead 8-0 in the third quarter, Crittenden shot through the middle of the line and then outraced the defense down the left sideline for a 43-yard touchdown.

"Jakarius got a chance," Hillsborough coach Earl Garcia said. "He's one of about four backs for us."

A shotgun snap on Plant City's third possession sailed over Nick Rodriguez's head and into the end zone. Rodriguez fell on the ball and Jordan Sherit downed the Raiders quarterback in the end zone for a safety. On the ensuing kickoff, Robert Wilson took it back 64 yards to the 4-yard line. Two plays later, Anthony King punched it in to put the Terriers ahead 8-0.

Landon Galloway's 2-yard touchdown run was Plant City's lone score. The Raiders defense, however, recorded five sacks, including a pair from John Broome.

    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.

    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.
