The Tallahassee Titans and Lakeland Thunderbolts were in a battle for second place. There was a record crowd on-hand tonight for the game. They reached 7,000 easily.
Ben Dougherty has reached teammate Rod Miller easily all season long. The two would hook up in the first quarter for the score early on. The touchdown made it a 14-8 Titans lead.
In the second quarter, that Rattler connection gets dialed up again as Dougherty hit Rod Miller diving in the endzone. The two were just getting warmed up. 21-8 Titans.
Dougherty is one of the league's top passers, but he would call his own number on a 5-yard QB sneak. That made it 28-8 Titans. They'd go into halftime with a 35-16 lead.
Things got interesting late when big Ben Dougherty was picked off. The Titans' 16 point lead shrunk down to 8, but the Titans defense steps up and seals the deal. 48-40 Titans move into sole possession of second place. 7-2 on the season.
