Crestview tailback Micah Reed is expected to have another big game when the Bulldogs take on Mosley on Friday. Crestview coach Kevin Pettis said it is important for another Crestview player to step up and take some of the pressure off of Reed.

CRESTVIEW — There is still plenty to play for as the Crestview football team heads to Panama City on Friday for a do-or-die District 2-6A game against Mosley. Kickoff at Tommy Oliver Stadium is at 7 p.m.

The Bulldogs (3-4, 1-2) are coming off a heartbreaking 13-8 loss to Navarre that saw the Raiders driving 90 yards for the winning touchdown in the final three minutes of play.

Crestview coach Kevin Pettis knows his team will need some help, but he said that with two district games left, the Bulldogs are very much alive for a spot in the playoffs.

“We are still in the hunt,” he said. “If we win out, we have to have Fort Walton Beach lose twice to be outright (in second place).”

After that, Crestview’s playoff equation becomes a bit more complicated, with the key factor being that the Bulldogs beat Mosley on Friday and end the season with a win over Niceville.

Friday’s loss to the Raiders was hard on Pettis.
