Football: Bloomingdale 42, Riverview 0

RIVERVIEW — Early mistakes foreshadowed Riverview's loss while Bloomingdale had a well-balanced attack.

The Sharks went three-and-out on their opening possession. Then a high snap into the end zone on the punt put two points on the board for the Bulls. After its defense give up a touchdown — Eugene Baker's 23-yard run — Riverview fumbled it away again.

The Sharks' only other chance to avoid the shutout was a successful field goal in the fourth quarter. However, they accepted a roughing the kicker penalty to make it first and goal. They couldn't get into the end zone, and a low snap skirted by the holder on the second field goal attempt.

Baker, Cody Crouse and Adam Posateri shined for Bloomingdale. Crouse connected with Posateri for two touchdowns, and Baker rushed for two. Christian Bennett led the defense with two interceptions in the red zone.
