Gators roll past Franklin County

Two D.J. Thomas runs later Baker was up 6-0. Malcolm Griffith's extra point made it 7-0 with 8:47 left in the first quarter.

The Seahawks fumbled away the ensuing kick off and David Oglesby recovered the live ball for Baker at the Franklin County 25.

Jon Beck hit Kodi Moen with a 25-yard touchdown pass on the next play as the Gators scored their second touchdown in 16 seconds to go up 14-0.

Before the end of the first quarter Brandon Engler scored from two yards out and Austin Martin scored from on a 23-yard run.

Thomas scored his second touchdown of the game and 21st of the season from 57 yards out with 10:06 left in the half to put the Gators up 35-0.

Thomas' long touchdown run was his last carry of the game as Gator Coach Matt Brunson quickly started to empty the bench and reward backups with some well earned playing time.

Even in limited playing time Thomas came up big rushing for 159 yards on nine carries. Thomas now has 1,480 yards rushing on the season.
