Big plays were plentiful in the new offense.

First-team quarterback Jon Beck opened things up early in the third quarter with a 66-yard pass to David Oglesby to set up a 4-yard touchdown run by Austin Martin with 6:11 left in the third quarter. Josh Mayhew added the extra point.

Chipley responded with a 15-yard scoring run from Arian Sims. The Tigers converted on the 2-point conversion with 2:14 left in the third. The fourth quarter was a mix of defense and offensive fire power.

Chipley stopped Baker on a fourth-and-goal at the 3-yard line only to have Gator linebacker Alante Coleman intercept a pass in the end zone on the next play to put the Gators up 28-20.

After a quick touchdown by the Tigers, Martin scored on a 34-yard run for his second touchdown of the night to put Baker up 35-26 with 3:34 left in the game.

Martin's touchdown was set up by a 36-yard pass from Beck to Jacob Nixon.

Neither team was through scoring yet.
