CRESTVIEW — Trailing Mosley by 21 points at the start of the fourth quarter Tuesday, the Crestview girls basketball team mounted a fast and furious comeback attempt outscoring the Dolphins 16-4 down the stretch.

But it wasn’t enough as Mosley took the District 2-6A game 52-43.

Molly Woodward and Jensis Coleman were the engines that powered the Bulldog rally in the fourth quarter. Woodward, who led the Bulldogs with 14 points, did her damage from long range hitting a pair of 3-point baskets and a 2-pointer.

Coleman, who had 12 points on the night, scored all of her points at the free throw line as she hit 8-of-12 from the stripe in closing eight minutes of play.

Bulldog coach Kathy Combest clearly upset with the play of some of her starters that enabled the Dolphins to take the big lead.

“It says that more girls on the bench want to play more than the girls that are playing (starting),” she said. “My smallest girls are the ones that want to play. The biggest kids, I don’t know what they want to do.
