CRESTVIEW — Tuesday was a nice opening night for the Crestview High School girls soccer team as the Bulldogs hosted Rocky Bayou Christian in a match played at Davidson Middle School.

Ashley Parker, Ruby Webb and Hannah Nolan each scored goals ands Baylee O'Marra had a pair of assists off corner kicks as Crestview beat the Knights 3-1.

After graduating nine seniors from last year's team Bulldog Coach Carl Everitt was pleased with the opening night in a match that had many freshmen seeing their first high school action.

"As you can see, they knock (kick) it around very nicely," he said. They knock it around and they play OK. They were stringing passes together.

"There were sequences of play where there were four or five passes and it was very nice. We are going to be very good. But right now we've got a lot of young girls and sometimes it's deer in the headlights out there."

Parker gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead about 10 minutes into the match when she scored on an unassisted goal.

Fifteen minutes later O'Marra teamed with Webb for the second Bulldog goal and Crestview (1-0) had a lead it wouldn't relinquish.
