Things changed quickly in the second quarter as Baker went on a 15-4 run to open up an 18-10 lead at the half.

A Bethany Chestnut basket to open the third quarter pushed the Gator lead to double digits for the first time in the game at 20-10.

The Bulldogs (6-10, 2-4) responded with a basket by Mary Kate Myrick and a pair of free throws by Katie Decker to close the Baker lead to six points.

An 11-0 Baker run sparked by Lily Phillips and Cassidy Anderson pushed the Gator lead to 31-14 with 1:04 left in the third quarter.

Freeport didn’t get closer than 14 points the rest of the way as the Gators continued to push the pace and score easy baskets in transition in pulling away to the win.

Bulldog coach Mike Myrick didn’t have to look hard to see the biggest problem facing his team.

“We just aren’t shooting the ball well right now,” he said. “When we aren’t shooting well we can’t get into our offensive flow.
