Anderson finished off the run with a 3-point basket of her own and Baker led 9-0 with 2:44 left in the first quarter.

The Jaguars finally got on the board with 2:28 remaining in the first quarter when Makayla Simmons scored a basket for the first two of her 18 points.

Baker led 12-7 at the end of the first quarter and stretched the lead to 27-16 at the half as Bethany Chestnut took over for the Gators scoring seven of her 15 points in the quarter.

Chestnut remained hot in the early stages of the third quarter as she scored Baker’s first two baskets in the period.

Anderson then took over again for the Gators scoring six points in the third as Baker led 44-24 after three.

Central tried to threaten in the fourth quarter, but the Jaguars couldn’t get the Gator lead into single digits as Baker held off the charge to take the win.

The win kept the momentum going for the Gators as they prepare for next week’s District 2-1A tournament at Freeport.
