FARMINGTON — The Bloomfield football team is off to a tremendous start to the 2015-2016 season, scoring an even 100 points through two games.

After beating Aztec by 20 last week, the 2-0 Bobcats followed that performance by blowing out the Pojoaque Valley Elks 52-0 on the road Friday night.

Bloomfield coach Bob Allcorn said he was impressed with his team's handling of the three-and-a-half hour road trip to Pojoaque.

"The kids played a little sluggish in the first quarter, but overall, they handled all that traveling really well and took care of business tonight," Allcorn said. "I thought we played remarkably better on defense."

The Bobcats gave up 28 points to Aztec last week but pitched a shutout Friday, forcing four turnovers in the process.

Brendan Ramsey had an interception return for a touchdown in the game, one of three Bloomfield picks. The Bobcats also forced and recovered a fumble.

On offense, Bloomfield's run game was again stout. Chauncey White, who starred last week with 178 rushing yards, was suspended for Friday's game for missing practice this week, but the team didn't miss a beat on the ground.

"We ran the ball very well, and we even had some good, effective passing," Allcorn said.

In addition to his defensive score, Ramsey rushed for two touchdowns in the win. His younger brother Matt Ramsey ripped off a 75-yard touchdown run late in the game.

JD Robinson scored two rushing touchdowns after rumbling for three last week.

Bloomfield will host Socorro, which is 1-0 and coming off a bye, at Bobcat Stadium on Friday.
