The game was still close with the score 3-1 after the fifth inning, but Crestview broke things open in the final two innings scoring eight runs on seven hits.

Hendersonhad a pair of hits, one a double, and drove in two runs in the last two innings. Dakota Dean had a sacrifice fly that scored a run in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh.

Thomason continued his big night with a two-run single in the sixth as well as the Bulldog bats came alive.

Crestview freshman Corey Armstrong gave the Bulldog faithful a glimpse of the future when he singled in his first high school at bat in the seventh inning.

The Gators managed a run in the seventh when Cody Nixon had a one-out single against Dean, who was in relief of Champion. Dean then hit a wild streak walking three of the next four batters to score Nixon.

Johnson knew his Class 1A Gators would have their hands full with the 6A Bulldogs, but he was pleased with what he saw from his team.
