Football: Bloomingdale 23, Riverview 7

VALRICO — Eugene Baker rushed for two touchdowns and more than 180 yards for the Bulls.

Bloomingdale (3-2) struck first with a field goal. But on the first play of the ensuing series, a 74-yard run by Lasander Washington put Riverview (2-2) up 7-3. Riverview stopped Baker for on gain on a fourth and 1 soon after.

But penalties hurt it throughout. The Sharks committed double-digit penalties, none more costly than a block in the back that negated a run to the Bulls 2 by quarterback Chase McCoy.

Baker scored on runs of 15 and 6 yards in the second and third quarters, respectively.

The Bulls defense came through in the fourth. Fito Merzier stripped Freeman. The next play was the only time Baker was stopped for a loss. But his next two runs each went for more than 10 yards.
