Published: Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 02:43 PM.

A Krista McQueen basket finished the run for Walton and the Braves had what would be their biggest lead of the game at seven points.

Simms stopped the Walton rally with a 3-pointer. Two quick baskets by McTear off Walton turnovers tied the game at 9-9.

The game would remain close the rest of the way.

Walton led 14-10 at the end of the first quarter. But a Simms basket followed by a Jensis Coleman 3-pointer gave Crestview the lead 15-14.

McTear sparked a 10-5 Crestview run as the Bulldogs pushed the lead to 25-19, their biggest of the night with 1:07 left in the half.

But the Bulldogs couldn’t stop McQueen. Two McQueen baskets in the final minute of the half helped Walton cut the lead to 25-23.

Both teams heated up in the third quarter as Crestview outscored Walton 24-22 to extend the lead to 49-46.
