Football: Tampa Catholic 33, Bloomingdale 14

VALRICO — Tampa Catholic fell behind by a touchdown in the first quarter, then reeled off 33 unanswered points to defeat Bloomingdale 33-14 Friday night.

The Crusaders (3-0) enjoyed a big size difference along the line and exploited it, running the ball 46 of 54 plays. Five TC runners gained more than 30 yards each, paced by a team-high 121 yards from freshman Corey Bennett.

"We have a lot of different options back there," TC coach Bob Henriquez said. "(Running the ball is ) our bread and butter. I couldn't be prouder of both our lines."

Jordan Rich-Rogers rushed for 115 yards on 20 carries and scored twice. Zach Dyer and Trevor Register also had rushing TDs while Bennett scored on a 78-yarder right up the middle.

The Bulls' (2-2) Eugene Baker rushed for a game-high 142 yard and a TD.
