To follow that touchdown, kicker Treyton Mckee kicked the ball right where it needed to be and scored a field goal. With a minute left in the first quarter number seven Dylan Armentrout had a long run with Bloom Carroll having had the ball on their own 49-yard line. Then the Bishop Watterson Eagles swooped in with Dominic Purcell getting a tackle for loss.  

Moving into the second quarter, the Bulldogs had the ball on the Eagles 14 yard line and were able to move it up to the eight yard line. Kicker Treyton Mckee did it again and was able to score a 28-yard field goal. This put the score at Bloom-Carroll 10-0.
