Rhodes found Dixon on a fade route in the corner of the end zone from 8 yards with 5:37 left in the quarter and Christian Marsh’s extra point narrowed the gap to 10 points.

Until the ensuing kickoff. Jaylynn Robinson bobbled Marsh’s pooch kick at his 20 and dribbled the ball momentarily around his feet. But when he recovered he easily broke contain down the visiting sideline and picked up a pair of vicious blocks to go 80 yards.

It sparked a trio of long scoring plays as the Bulldogs turned a triumph into a rout. Robinson streaked 69 yards on a sweep to the right on Crestview’s opening possession of the fourth quarter.

Emmanuel Reed duplicated the yardage and the result with 5:19 remaining.

Crestview enjoyed an advantage of beef and muscle on both sides of the football and it showed on the stat sheet. The Bulldogs piled up 361 yards to 171 for the Dolphins.

Mosley’s backfield, already missing leading rusher Ryan Rogers and forced to juggle the roster, was further limited in the second half.

In the space of two minutes, Rhodes was knocked from the game when Ware broke through for a clean hit during an incompletion, halfback Andrew Hardrick had to leave the game and Warnick, moved from defense to supplement the halfback position was sidelined.
