Thomas, who averaged 200 yards a game during the regular season, was held to 99 yards on 30 carries. Stroheker added 54 yards on 12 carries and caught one pass for 45 yard.

Baker quarterback Jon Beck struggled against the speedy Hornet secondary as he completed just 4-of-13 passes for 85 yards.

The Gators managed just 235 yards in total offense while Cottondale racked up 360 yards.

Thomas admitted it was tough going against the big Hornet defense.

"It was just a battle up front and we came out on the bottom of this one," he said. "We've been on top for a while. All good things must come to an end at one time or another.

"I guess that's the way this went."
