Prime time teams

Berkeley Prep: The Buccaneers got payback for last year’s region semifinal loss in a big way, beating rival Clearwater Central Catholic 41-7. Since losing to Jesuit in the season opener, Berkeley Prep has won four straight, including victories over Tampa Catholic, Lakeland Victory Christian and Lakeland Christian, all ranked among the top 10 in the state in their respective classifications.

Cambridge Christian: For the second second straight week, the Lancers beat a quality opponent, this time knocking off Orlando Christian Prep 46-35 to remain undefeated. 

Clearwater Academy: After a brutal early season schedule left them 0-4, the Knights have started to rebound. They have won two straight, the biggest this week against Vero Beach, which was ranked eighth in Class 8A by MaxPreps. 

Chamberlain: The 45-0 win over Robinson was the Chiefs’ third straight and gives them momentum heading into the final week of the regular season.   

Tampa Bay Tech: For the fourth straight game, the Titans scored more than 40 points. That high-scoring attack has helped Tampa Bay Tech win two straight, the latest coming in a 48-14 rout over Wiregrass Ranch. 

Gaither: With a 47-8 victory over Freedom, the Cowboys clinched their first undefeated regular season in school history. Gaither faces Osceola on Friday in a Class 6A play-in postseason game. 

Nature Coast: The Sharks rallied in the fourth quarter to beat Crystal River 28-21 to win a (mythical this year) district title and remain the lone unbeaten team in Hernando County. 

Prime time players

WR/DL Zack Antoniou, Sr., Plant: Had six catches for 129 yards and a touchdown in a win over Alonso. He also had a sack and a forced fumble on defense. 

RB Travis Bates, Jr., Berkeley Prep: Ran for 141 yards and scored three touchdowns in the win over Clearwater Central Catholic. 

WR Artez Hooker, Sr., Lakewood: The Buffalo commit took a short screen pass and turned it into what turned out to be the winning score in a 14-10 victory over Largo. 

RB Romello Jones, Jr., Plant City: Ran for more than 200 yards and scored five touchdowns in a win over Durant. 

ATH Leroy Lopez, Sr., Countryside: Accounted for 244 yards (174 rushing, 70 receiving) and three touchdowns in a win over Seminole. 

ATH Jordan Oladokun, Sr., Gaither: Filling in at quarterback, Oladokun threw for more than 200 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Freedom. 

QB Enzo Tedesco, Sr., Chamberlain: Threw for three touchdowns in a win over Robinson.

Sydney Stout reaches 100 touchdown passes — this season

Published

on

Robinson quarterback Sydney Stout reached an impressive milestone with her 100th touchdown pass on Monday.   

That is not a career mark.

Stout reached that total this season.

The senior already had shattered the flag football single-season state record of 79 touchdown passes and entered the Class 2A region final needing just three touchdowns to hit triple digits. 

No problem. 

Stout threw four touchdown passes — in the first half. 

She added another in the second half to give her 102, a number that will continue to grow. 

After all, the Knights beat Lecanto 34-0 in the region final. Robinson, which has won state titles in five of the past six seasons (the 2020 season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic), advances to the state semifinals on Friday. Stout could end up playing in two more games if the Knights keep their state title streak intact. 

And there’s a good chance of that happening considering Robinson has outscored foes by a combined 816-50 this year.
