Setting up shop on the Yellow Jacket 39 the Gators ran the ball six times with Thomas getting five of the carries. Thomas took the ball in from 20 yards out with 4:52 left in the first quarter and Malcolm Griffith kicked the first of his six extra points. Up 7-0 Bake never trailed.

A 6-yard touchdown run by Crowson with a minute left in the first quarter was followed by a 27 yard run by Thomas less than a minute into the second quarter.

The Thomas touchdown came after Chasen Holt recovered an onside kick for the Gators.

Vernon (1-9) found running the ball tough against the Gator defense as the Yellow Jackets finished the game with 11 yards rushing on 26 carries.

What Vernon was able to do is throw the ball as quarterback Tristan Porter looked speedy receivers Austin Brown, Alex Andrews and Cody Harmon to ignite the Yellow Jacket offense.

Porter, who finished the game with 166 yards through the air, got the Yellow Jackets on the scoreboard on a 41-yard pass to Brown with 9:17 left in the first half.

The score remained 21-7 until early in the third quarter when Stroheker broke a 15-yard run to the end zone with 7:29 left in the quarter.
