Football: Bloomingdale 40, Strawberry Crest 6

DOVER — Bloomingdale improved to 2-0 for the first time and broke a 6-6 halftime tie with 21 third-quarter points en route to a decisive 40-6 victory over Strawberry Crest. Eugene Baker had a dominant performance for the Bulls, rushing for touchdowns of 80, 22 and 10 yards in the third quarter, while racking up 182 rushing yards total.

"He was a man tonight," Bloomingdale coach John Booth.

Baker got the Bulls on the board first in the second quarter on a 24-yard touchdown pass from Cody Crouse for a 6-0 lead. The Chargers (0-2) answered just three minutes later on Alex Portillo's 22-yard scoring run to tie.

In the second half, however, the Bulls blew the game open by scoring 34 unanswered points, paced by Baker's three TDs.

"I just told (my offensive line) to give me a few seconds, and I'll make a play," Baker said.
