Creese Redman ran in two touchdowns in the first while Matt Carter would be the leader in rushing with 96 yards and a touchdown of his own.

Jericoe McGuire ran in another touchdown early in the second. Gainesville answered back with six points, but was shut down again when Carter ran for 52 yards to bring the score to 36-6 to end the half.

The Tornadoes dominated the third quarter scoring a touchdown and a two-point conversion.
