CRESTVIEW — The Crestview High School boys basketball fought off a sluggish star to take a 72-54 win over District 1-7A foe Tate on Friday.

Perhaps it was the Bulldogs were suffering a hangover from their win over Fort Walton Beach on Tuesday. Or maybe the Crestview players were already thinking about Christmas as the holidays started Friday.

Whatever the reason for the slow start Bulldog coach Greg Watson, while happy with the win, was not happy with the way his team played.

"It was just a very frustrating night," he said. "We didn't play well defensively. Offensively we had too many sloppy turnovers.

"We couldn't make a shot. It just seemed like everything was going wrong. But right there in the fourth quarter we made some big plays."

Several times throughout the game it seemed as if the Bulldogs (7-1, 3-0) were on the brink of putting the game out of the reach of the Aggies.

Crestview's big man tandem of Denzel Ware and Jerry Siler gave the Bulldogs a quick boost in the first quarter. Ware and Siler each scored four points in the first quarter helping Crestview to a 15-8 lead at the end of the period.
