“I thought they played extremely well offensively, defensively, and on special teams,” head coach Todd McDaniel said. “It’s great to make up for mistakes and bring home a victory at the same time.”

The Gators got in the end zone early with Malik Montgomery scoring the first touchdown. He also rushed for a second touchdown late in the game.

The Gator defense held their own all night with multiple stops, including a pick six by Julien Demby and Kearris Gilliam that added major points to the board. VHS acquired a 27-0 lead by halftime.

The Patriots began moving the ball downfield after coming out of halftime, but quickly turned the ball over on downs after Demarcus Johnson put a hard hit on the ball carrier. Eric Wesley and Wallyeke Curry also grabbed an interception before the night was over.
