Football: Bloomingdale 23, Strawberry Crest 12

VALRICO — A seesaw battle with four lead changes turned into an exchange of punts in the second half, during which Bloomingdale scored the only points.

"We told our kids all week it's going to be a slugfest," Bloomingdale coach John Booth said.

Nine of the game's 12 punts came during the second half. That's also when the Bulls rallied from a 12-10 deficit on Isaiah McIntyre's 29-yard sideline pass to Doug Sandberg and 16-yard run up the middle in the waning minutes.

"At halftime, we said we've got to find our playmaker to put us over the top," Booth said. "And (McIntyre is) our playmaker."

McIntyre, a sophomore who also scored on a sneak during the second quarter, accounted for 193 of his team's 275 yards of offense, passing for 127 and running for 66.

Strawberry Crest opened the scoring with Tristan Hyde's 5-yard pass to his brother, Joshua. Bloomingdale scored the next 10 points on Lucas Jose's 53-yard field goal (his 52-yarder on the previous possession fell just short) and McIntyre's first touchdown run.

Tristan Hyde, a junior coming off a breakout season that included 20 touchdowns, also threw a 21-yard touchdown to Farron Rainford. He was 15-of-36 for 219 yards.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Jacob Faria allowed his first two big-league home runs and was touched for a career-high three runs Saturday by the Orioles. Other than that, the rookie making his fourth major-league start did okay against the Baltimore bats.
