Cards struggle to score in loss at Edgewood

Saturday, December 8, 2012

Without backcourt ace Ben Hays (injury), Bloomfield only managed nine field goals as the Cardinals slipped to 5-2 after a 50-25 loss at Edgewood Saturday night in a high school boys basketball game.

Bloomfield did not score in the opening eight minutes and trailed 21-3 at the half.

"Edgewood was very focused defensively," said Bloomfield coach Matt Britton. "Their physicality really hurt us and they made it hard for us to run our offense in the first half. We missed a lot of shots and turned the ball over way too much (16 Edgewood steals, 24 BHS turnovers). You cannot do that against a good team. They make you pay for your mistakes.

"But I was proud of the kid's effort in the second half. We had the right attitude and played hard after halftime."

Brandon VanSant scored eight points and Kyle Robinson added seven for Bloomfield.

The Cardinals lost the junior varsity game 38-32.

"We can learn from this as we move forward," said Britton.

Bloomfield will be back in action Saturday, Dec. 15 against White River Valley.
