FORT WALTON BEACH — Simply put Saturday was not a good night for the Crestview girls basketball team.

Choctawhatchee seniors Brittany Brown and Lauren Day made their final regular season home game one to remember.

Brown scored a game-high 30 points and Day chipped in 22 as the Indians celebrated Senior Night with a 68-31 District 2-6A win over the Bulldogs.

“It’s always good to go out and get a win for the seniors here at home,” Indian coach Don Brown said. “We hate to see them go, but we are looking forward to them moving on to bigger and better things.

“But we still have a lot of work to do the rest of the year. One of our goals was to be number one in the district. We still have to play the tournament, but this was huge for us tonight.”

Brown and Day wasted no time in making their respective presences felt in the game.

In a sign of things to come they teamed up for all of Choctaw’s 23 first quarter points as the Indians (23-0, 8-0) were off and running with a 23-10 lead at the end of the first quarter.
