Bulldogs fall short of lofty expectations

Published: Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 11:08 AM.

After four straight losses, the Bulldogs headed to Choctawhatchee and pulled out a 28-24 win, making their record 3-4 overall and 1-1 in district play.

With three weeks left in the season, there was still plenty to play for as Navarre came to town for a big district game in week eight.

Late in the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs led the Raiders 8-7 and it looked as if Crestview’s fortunes were changing, but Navarre drove the field’s length, scored a touchdown and took a 13-8 win.

A 39-7 win over Mosley in week nine kept Crestview’s playoff hopes alive as the Bulldogs hosted Niceville in the season’s 10th week.

A Bulldog win, coupled with a Choctaw win over Fort Walton Beach, would give Crestview second place in the district behind Navarre.

 But the season that started with so much promise ended in disappointment as the Eagles beat the Bulldogs 42-7.

Two years into the Kevin Pettis era at Crestview, the Bulldogs are 8-12 overall and 4-6 in District 2-6A play, having failed to make playoffs each year.
