Tony Moraz scored the Gators' only touchdown from 4 yards out in the fourth quarter and Davidsonville followed that with a one-point conversion run to pull to within one.
The Buccaneers' defense, led by Chase Hoffman (seven tackles), Gary Alvey and Brooks Hollman (six tackles each) and Todd Nelson (four), tightened up in the waning moments and protected the Bucs' lead.
Billy Sansing had three tackles and returned an interception 38 yards in the fourth quarter to halt the Gators' final drive. Other defensive standouts for the county champions were Joe Brockmeyer, John Johnson and Freddie Sutherland with three tackles each and Guinoo, Patrick Rice and Pat Selba with two tackles apiece.

Joe Kuti was a standout on special teams where he recovered an onside kick. Mike York, B.J. Doyle, Mike Jewell and Dave Johnson provided excellent coverage on special teams, and punter Chase Hoffman put the Gators deep in their own territory in the first half with a 35-yard punt.
