Published: Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 01:38 AM.

A tough Tiger squad (0-1) responded with two touchdowns by Jarrett  Brogdon to go up 14-7.

Beck's pass to Moen pulled the Gators to within a point when the extra point was wide.

Graceville added another score on a 42-run by Kyler Trim.

With less than two minutes left in the half Baker's Izayaih Thomas pounced on a Graceville fumble setting up the second D.J. Thomas score of the night.

Baker tied the game when Beck hit Kodi Nixon for the 2-point conversion.

The Gators scored on a four-play, 75-yard drive to open the third quarter with D.J. Thomas scoring from 22 yards out. Malcolm Griffith's extra point gave the Gators the lead they would never relinquish with 10:27 left in the third quarter.

Graceville answered with a score from Eddie Myrick, but the Tigers ran out of gas as Baker picked up the two fourth quarter scores to seal the win.
