FREEPORT — There would be no heartbreaking loss for the Baker School football team against District 1-1A rival Freeport on Friday.

Two years ago, the Bulldogs won on a field goal in overtime. Last year it was Freeport winning on a drive late in the fourth quarter.

But Friday belonged to Baker running back D.J. Thomas and the Gator Express as Baker traveled to Freeport for its District 1-1A opener.

Thomas had touchdown runs of four, 35, 56, 49 and 41 yards.

Richard Stroheker added a 3-yard scoring run, Kodi Moen a 65-yard touchdown reception from Jon Beck and Ben Crowson scored from a yard out.
