LUTZ — It was a battle of dueling Deons, as they combined for seven touchdowns to lift Tampa Bay Tech over Steinbrenner in a Class 7A-District 7 game.

Deon Thompson ran for three touchdowns and caught two more from Deon Cain, who threw for four on the night. The Titans (4-1) led 35-28 going into the fourth quarter before they scored 19 consecutive points.

For the senior Thompson, it was a career night.

“I’ve battled injuries the whole time,’’ Thompson said. “This was the biggest game of my career.”

It wasn’t all perfect for Tampa Bay Tech. The Titans committed 21 penalties, and coach Jayson Roberts knows there is room for improvement.

“We were pumped up for this all week,” Roberts said. “I talked to them at halftime and told them that they were playing sloppy. Deon (Thompson) was big for us and Deon (Cain) showed why he is one of the best athletes in the state.”

Cain threw for 307 yards on the night.
