BAKER — The Baker football team faces its season’s toughest challenge Friday night as the Gators host District 1-1A leader Northview in a 7p.m. game at Doug Griffith Memorial Stadium.

Playoff implications will be on the line as well.

If Baker beats Northview and if Jay can upset Freeport, the Gators will win the district championship.

If both Baker and Freeport win then Baker, Freeport and Northview will face off in a shootout to determine the district champs and runner. If Baker and Freeport lose, Baker, Jay and Freeport will meet in a shootout to determine second place in the district.

Baker coach Matt Brunson said it is important to be in a position to make the playoffs as the season winds down.

“All you can ask is to be playing Week 10 and have a shot at the playoffs,” he said. “We have done that so we will see what happens.”
