Freeport’s best drive of the second half was derailed when David Oglesby made a diving interception of a Bates’ pass.

Gator coach Matt Brunson was pleased with the way his team pulled together.

“Our guys have been working hard all year and they fought hard,” he said. “Tonight was kind of us taking a step in district play that we’ve needed to take last couple of years and these guys did a great job.

“I’m proud of their effort.”

Freeport coach Jim Anderson credited the Gators for a strong showing while finding the good in an ugly loss for his young team.

“Matt has done a fine job,” he said. “Baker is a really good team.

“We had a lot of positives tonight. I feel like that we are getting better. We are giving up some points, but we had fewer turnovers tonight than we’ve been having in the past and we had fewer penalties. We are just being positive and we are working to improve every day.”
