The Gators (5-0, 1-0) ended the game 387 yards rushing on 43 carries to go along with the 104 yards through the air.

Thomas’ first two scores gave the Gators 14-0 lead as Malcolm Griffith connected on the first of his seven extra points.

Freeport (0-6, 0-1) got on the scoreboard with a 1:12 left in the first quarter when Dillon Bates hit Kyle Collinsworth with a 23-yard touchdown pass.

On Baker’s next play Thomas scored his third touchdown to quickly steal whatever momentum was momentarily in the Bulldog camp.

A 34-yard run by Skyler Gillies gave the Bulldogs a first-and-goal at the Baker 1-yard line to open the second quarter. Bates scored on the next play on a quarterback sneak and Matthew Blair added the extra point for the final Freeport score of the night.

Stroheker, Thomas and Moen scored for the Gators in the second quarter.

Thomas scored his last TD of the night on the first play of the third quarter and Crowson scored on the first play of the fourth quarter.
