TAMPA — Plant's biggest task Friday was to figure out a full-time replacement for quarterback Rex Culpepper, the Syracuse commit who tore his ACL three weeks ago and is out for the season.The answer was not clear after a 31-21 win over Venice in Friday's kickoff classic. The three vying to take over the position — Judge Culpepper, Dane Frantzen and Kyle Trina — all had their moments but Panthers coach Robert Weiner was still reluctant to name a starter for next week's season opener."I really like all three of them," Weiner said. "They all played great. We'll have to go back and evaluate the film."The three quarterbacks alternated series and each led Plant on scoring drives to build a 21-0 early in the second quarter.Frantzen, who started the game, scored on a 4-yard run on the Panthers' opening series. On the second play of the following drive, Judge Culpepper lofted a pass to Whop Philyor for a 79-yard touchdown. And Trina directed a drive that resulted in a 44-yard touchdown run by Scoop Bradshaw.Plant's defense also played well despite not having defensive back Juwan Burgess and linebacker Thomas Allen, who were both out with injuries. The Indians were forced to punt on their first three series and were stopped on downs once.It wasn't until late in the second quarter that Venice found some life on offense, and it came on a big play as quarterback Bryce Carpenter threw an 80-yard screen pass to Courtney Doss to cut it to 21-7 at the half.After Plant's Stephen Yaffe hit a 30-yard field goal in the third quarter, the Indians answered with two scores. The first was a 44-yard pass from Carpenter to Malik Bryant. The second was a 1-yard run by Doss that cut it to 24-21 in the fourth quarter.The Panthers rounded out the scoring on Tykese Keaton-Baldwin's 29-yard run with five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
