CRESTVIEW — A tenacious Crestview boys basketball team hosted District 2-6A leader Fort Walton Beach riding a three-game winning streak and looking for their third-consecutive district win.

Down 5-0 early in the game, the Bulldogs quickly found their stride on the way to a 57-42 win over the Vikings.

Bulldog coach Ken Meisner said the formula for success was a simple one.

“The key tonight was the same thing it’s been the last couple of nights, and that’s hustle,” he said. “When you hustle you can do a lot of good things. I think our conditioning is doing well and it’s starting to pay off.

“Fort Walton had a long road trip to Memphis this weekend and they looked a little tired, but they are going to be back. They are still the team to beat.”

Things didn’t look so good for the Bulldogs when Viking post player Tyrone Culbreth scored the first basket of the game on a fourth offensive rebound of the possession and turned it into a 3-point play making a free throw.
