Preseason football: Plant 36, Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson 12

TAMPA — There were five turnovers, tons of flags, miscues and sloppy play in general for Plant on Friday night. One look at the scoreboard, however, and everything was just fine for the Panthers as Plant easily knocked off Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson 36-12 in its preseason game.

"You never want to see those silly mistakes and always want to eliminate them," Plant coach Robert Weiner said. "But we still were able to make the plays we look for."

After a slow first-quarter start, Plant signal caller Aaron Banks looked much sharper in the second quarter with a pair of touchdown throws to Cameron Winter (28 yards) and K.J. Walker (24).

Banks sustained a hip pointer in the second half and left the game, but Weiner said it wasn't anything severe.

In the second half, Plant dismantled Boyd Anderson's offensive attack. The Panthers gave up one big play on a long touchdown throw, but after that shut down the Cobras' offensive attack.

"I actually like how we played defense in the first half, too," Weiner said. "But we were much more physical in the second half and really got into their backfield several times."
