Crestview girls open season with win

“We’ve got to get the girls a little more in tune to what we are trying to do. They don’t want back up and run the offense. We’ve still got to get them patient and get them to do what we need them to do and that’s because it’s a new system.”

While the Bulldogs (1-0) are still a work in progress they showed plenty of potential on their way to the win.

Senior Kerrie York helped Crestview get off to a fast start scoring six first-quarter points as Crestview took the early lead.

The Bulldogs didn’t lead the entire game, but they led most of the way and never trailed after an Arianna Simms’ fast break layup with 2:51 left in the opening period.

Crestview’s smothering half-court defense kept the Raiders (0-1) from being able to get into their offense as the Bulldogs led 18-12 at the end of the opening quarter.

Once the Bulldogs took the lead they did everything they could to hold onto it. Navarre used some long-range shooting to cut a point off the Crestview lead heading into the half with the score 33-38.

Crestview maintained the 5-point edge most of the third quarter until Navarre’s Celine Charitat it a 3-pointer with 2:47 left in the period to get the Bulldog advantage to 45-43. Navarre pulled to within a point of Crestview at the 1:03 mark in the quarter when Jess Reyes hit a free throw.
