Heart of a 'Champion' (photo gallery)

The Bulldogs tied things up in the third inning as Dean tripled and scored on a passed ball.

Mosley strung together three more hits good for another run in the bottom of the fourth inning, but another double play snuffed out the threat.

Crestview got back-to-back doubles from Tate Sweatt and Roman Donofro to lead off the fifth inning and tie the game up. A two-out single by Corey Armstrong scored Donofro with the game winning run.

Mosley had a runner in scoring position in both the sixth and seventh innings, but Champion and the Bulldogs wouldn't be denied as they kept the Dolphins off the scoreboard to claim the win.

"We won a big game on Tuesday night (beating Niceville in the semifinals) and these kids didn't get satisfied," Gillis said. "It's going to be a tough row to hoe (in the playoffs). We are just happy to be in it and we are going to give our best effort every day.

"We've got a lot of real good players on this team. I tell them we don't have to be great every night, we just have to be good enough. Tonight we hung in there and we are very fortunate to get a win."
