Bloomfield QB rushes for 5 TD's in playoff win
BLOOMFIELD - If Bloomfield quarterback Braden Eisenhauer had his way, he would play Hartington-Newcastle every week.
The senior QB rushed for 220 yards and five touchdowns, leading the 2-seed Bees to a 50-20 Class D2 second-round win over the 7-seeded Wildcats.
Just two weeks ago, Eisenhauer rushed for 336 yards and 4 TD's against this very same Hartington-Newcastle team.
This time, Eisenhauer's heroics helped Bloomfield advance to the D2 quarterfinals for the third year in four years. Their opponent will be Falls City Sacred Heart, also for the third time in four years. The Bees have not advanced past the quarterfinals since 2001.
Hartington-Newcastle finished the year 6-4. Senior quarterback Shaye Morton needed just 60 rushing yards to become just the third eight-man player this season to eclipse both 1,000 rushing and passing yards in the same season, but he came ten yards short of the mark.
