Plantation gets crucial win vs. Cypress Bay 21-13

Plantation barely staved off Cypress Bay on the road to remain undefeated in district play.

The Colonels (4-1, 2-0) now hold the upper hand in 12-8A, arguably the most unforgiving district in the state. Cypress Bay fell to 1-3, 0-1.

After an awful first half, Plantation seized the lead for good early in the third quarter when wide receiver Jamari Sweet took a screen pass from midfield into the end zone.

Top Two

Archie Banton: Passed for 127 yards and two touchdowns for the Colonels.

Jake Fuhrman: Nailed two field goals and made a touchdown-saving tackle on a kickoff return for the Lightning.

They Said It

“There are no off weeks [in this district]. It's tough. We just try to keep these kids focused on one game at a time.”
