VALRICO — Bloomingdale QB Isaiah McIntyre and Alonso QB Chris Oladokun dueled back and forth all night, but in the end McIntyre and the Bulls made a few more plays and emerged with the key Class 8A-District 6 win.
Bloomingdale went up 14-0 in the second quarter before Alonso came back to tie it on 38-yard and 25-yard Oladokun touchdown passes to Brandon Robinson and Derius Davis, respectively.
The Bulls responded with an eight-play, 65-yard drive that saw McIntyre connect with Doug Sandberg for a 20-yard TD pass just before halftime.
Alonso put together a 14-play drive and tied it at 21 on Oladokun's third touchdown pass when he threw a 10-yarder to Davis.
The winning score came on Bloomingdale's next drive when it put together a long drive of its own and Lucas Jose kicked a 23-yard field goal with three minutes to go.
After exchanging possessions again, Bloomingdale had to survive one last Hail Mary attempt to secure the victory.
McIntyre had 205 yards passing and 94 yards rushing. Oladokun had 292 yards passing and three TDs.
