FARMINGTON — Bloomfield evened its record with a 67-58 win Monday against Navajo Prep in Farmington.

Malachi Pablo led the Bobcats (2-2) with 20 point in the victory, including 12 points in about a two-minute stretch in the third quarter.

"Malachi got going a bit, and we just rode the hot hand," said Bloomfield head coach Devon Manning. "He hit three 3s in a row to help give us a little breathing room."

Christian Chavez joined Pablo in double figures for the Bobcats with 16 points.

After playing three games in three days Thursday through Saturday, Manning said he was happy with the energy his team showed in the victory.

"They showed a lot of good effort," he said. "I can't complain about that at all. They came out and played well."

Next for Bloomfield will be a game against Bayfield, Colo., on Thursday.

"I'm hoping we take that energy from tonight and go forward," Manning said. "Tyler Barker got hurt tonight, so we'll need everybody to set up."
