CRYSTAL FALLS - Senior Derek Aberly made the most of his first start at tailback Friday night.

Aberly ran seven times for 120 yards and two touchdowns, all in the first half, as Forest Park earned an easy 43-8 homecoming victory over Baraga in Great Western Conference football at Dick Mettlach Field.

"Our guys knew that we didn't play all that well last week, and the challenge was to come out and fix things," Trojans head coach Bill Santilli said, referencing last week's loss at North Dickinson. "We moved some people around, trying a different look based on some of the things we saw last week.

Forest Park's Derek Aberly finds running room.

"We're hoping that with these position changes - with the personnel we moved around - we can be ready for a good Gogebic team next week and hopefully field a stronger lineup come playoff time."

The Trojans led 29-0 at halftime.
