After a GMC score midway through the second period, Gantt ran for his second touchdown from 14-yards out to give FPD a 21-7 advantage at the half.

The Vikings continued their scoring outbreak in the third quarter when kicker James Collins drilled a 30-yard field goal, giving FPD the upper hand at 24-7.

FPD’s final score came in the fourth quarter after a recovered fumble by the FPD defense and a Ryan Lindsey eight-yard touchdown run.
