Football: Alonso 20, Bloomingdale 0

VALRICO — On a night bogged down by more than 200 penalty yards and a soggy field, Alonso was thrilled just to be heading home. A shutout victory over a district opponent doesn't hurt either, as the Ravens (3-2, 1-0) defeated Bloomingdale (3-3, 0-1), 20-0 Friday night.

While the Bulls tried and failed to throw the ball, Alonso was content working their junior running back. Ish Witter finished with 112 yards on 25 carries.

Tensions ran high for most of the game, climaxing with the ejection of Bloomingdale defensive end Tyler Jahn after he tossed his helmet while walking off the field.

"There's always rivalries with district games and we're dealing with 16-, 17-, and 18-year-old kids," said Alonso coach Brian Emanuel. "I think the officials did a good job of controlling it."
