Reed leads Bulldogs past Choctaw

Published: Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 01:05 AM.

The senior ate up 51 yards of the game-opening 78-yard drive on nine carries, the last a 1-yard run to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter.

The momentum, though, couldn’t be sus-tained because of ball-security issues.

Late in the first quarter after Choctaw was forced to punt for the second time in as many drives, a Da-kota Davis fumble was recovered by Zachery Theriault at the Bulldogs’ 15. Four plays later, Chase Whitehead punched it in on a 4-yard run to knot the score at 7.

But Crestview’s turn-over woes weren’t over just yet.

After a pair of defensive stops by both teams, Crestview’s Tate Sweatt coughed up the ball on a punt return and Darryl Johnson pounced to set up Choctaw camp inside the red zone. Two plays later, Chacon capped off the 16-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown run 8:10 to play in the half to give Choctaw a 14-7 advantage.

“We just gift wrapped them 14 points there,” Pettis said.

In response, Crestview would turn back to the legs of Reed. Giving him 140 yards in the first half, Reed busted a 74-yard touch-down run up the gut to knot the score at 14 with 1:31 to play in the half.
