CHIPLEY — It was a team effort Thursday night for the Baker School football team as the Gators took on Chipley in their spring football game.

Four different Baker players scored a touchdown and Malcolm Griffith kicked a 33-yard field goal in a 32-22 win.

“I felt like up front we won the battle in the trenches,” Baker coach Matt Brunson said. “And like I’ve said all along, I think they’ve bought into the system.

“They’ve gotten strong enough where I felt like our offensive line knocked some big holes in there.”

Griffith’s field goal with 7:36 left in the first quarter gave Baker a 3-0 lead.

The Gators trailed 6-3 late in the second quarter, but a 9-yard touchdown run by Dillon Nixon and a 2-point conversion by Austin Davis put the Gators in front 11-6.

Baker led the rest of the way as D.J Thomas, Kodi Nixon and Richard Stroheker scored second-half touchdowns and respective starting squads took over in the second half.
