The Raiders (7-0, 1-0) found themselves in another defensive battle with the Gators. After a scoreless first quarter, Navarre found the end zone twice in the second, on runs by Caine Adamson and Hasaan Williams. Williams added 129 yards on 24 carries.
The Gators finally got on the board on with a 32-yard field goal by Emilo Maldonado in the third and Jabre Brown added a touchdown in the fourth to cut it to five. But that would be as close as they would get.
Brady Hammel would put the final points on the board for Navarre with two 30+ yards field goals in the fourth to keep the Raiders undefeated through seven games. This was the first time that Navarre started out a season with seven straight wins.
Bo Hering contributed 13 tackles (8 solo/5 assists/TFL) and Aaron Mitchell with 10 (3 solo/7 assists) to lead the defense. Navarre had three picks, two by Michael Sandle and one by Ryan Diamco.
