BAKER — There were no surprises at Baker School's Doug Griffith Memorial Stadium on Friday as the undefeated Gators hosted a winless Franklin County team for Homecoming 2013.

Baker scored two touchdowns in the first three-and-a-half minutes of play and didn't look back on the way to a 54-13 win.

The score was 47-7 at the half and the second half was played with a running clock to help ease the pain of the visiting Seahawks.

The Gators (8-0) scored on all but their last offensive possession. And for good measure Troy Smith returned the interception of a Franklin County pass 55 yards giving Baker a defensive score.

"It was just a good read," Smith said of his score. "Once I caught the ball I just had to take it to the house."

Things started badly for the Seahawks (0-8) when they were forced into a three-and-out on the opening possession of the game. Things got worse when the Franklin County punt didn't make it back to the line of scrimmage and went in the books as a negative six yard kick.

The poor punt set the Gators up at the Franklin County 27-yard line.
