The Bloomfield community sponsored high school football team claimed the Quad County Championship with a 12-0 win over the Martin Country Raiders Saturday at Owen Valley High School.

The game began with the Raiders receiving the ball. Martin County's rush attack was used to eat up much of the clock.

The Cardinal defense forced a Raider punt after a forced fumble for a loss of 22 yards by Cody Hutcherson.

After a short punt, the Cardinals took over a short field at the 24 yard line.

The Cardinals turned the ball over on downs at their own 4 yard line. Martin County's ensuing drive was a three and out resulting in a punt. The Raider defense would hold the Cardinals to just 5 yards on their second possession of the game.

Martin County finished the first half of the game driving, but ran out of time. The game was scoreless at the end of the half.

The Cardinals opened the third quarter with Bart Query returning the kick off for 12 yards to the 35 yard line. Bloomfield pounded the ball, wearing down the Raider defense and using up most of the third quarter before finally getting on the board.

Query ran for a 5 yard touchdown to put Bloomfield ahead.

Martin County had time for just one play as time expired in the third.

The Raiders drive continued in the fourth quarter before Tyler Harris and Mitch McKinney forced a fumble that was recovered by the Cardinal's Nate Scott.

The Cardinals went 43 yards in six plays ending with a 11 yard touchdown run by Harris.

The Raiders would have one more possession in the game but could not muster a first down. The Cardinals took a knee to run out the clock.

The Cardinal offense was led by Query who carried the ball 17 times for 72 yards with a TD.

Harris was 2 of 6 for 43 yards passing and had 24 yards on 6 carries with one TD.

The defense held the Raiders to 56 yards and was led by Harris and J.T. Speer with 7 tackles each.
