TAMPA — Bloomingdale's defensive stand at its 5-yard line with less than a minute left was the difference in a 25-20 victory.
The Bulls' total yards matched their point total at the end of the first half, but they only trailed 7-6 thanks to four Chiefs turnovers.
"It came down to our offensive line," Bulls coach John Booth said. "We had a lot of three and outs in the first half so we put the challenge to them."
The Bulls offense clicked on a nine-play, 75-yard drive that featured junior running back Eugene Baker heavily. Adam Posateri finished the drive with a 20-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter to bring the Bulls within 14-12; he helped seal the win with a 50-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth after a Baker TD.
