Brandon 48, Bloomingdale 0

VALRICO — Brandon scored 21 points in the first quarter on its way to routing Bloomingdale 48-0. The Eagles used 11 different running backs, five of whom found the end zone, to gain 299 yards.

Penalties did delay Brandon's scoring. A block in the back erased a 48-yard run by Josh Celerin on the opening drive. Shawn Concil capped the series with an 11-yard run. Brandon had 65 yards of penalties in the first quarter.

Sean Watson excelled for the Eagles (3-7) in all facets. As a running back, he had 43 yards. As a kicker, he made six extra points. And as a linebacker, he returned a fumble 40 yards for a score.

Bloomingdale (0-10) couldn't capitalize on the free yards. Eugene Perry broke free for a 57-yard run, its longest play of the game, but was injured on the play and didn't return. His status was unknown.
