Fort Walton Beach put the game out of reach in the fifth inning when three consecutive hits by Kati Christensen, Bazylak and Dehlinger produced two more Viking runs.

Crestview batters struggled against Dehlinger the entire game.

A two-out single by Kayla Kelch in the first inning was the only Bulldog hit until Dardon doubled with one out in the sixth. Dehlinger retired 14-consecutive Bulldog batters between the Kelch base hit in the first and Dardon's double in the sixth.

Taylor Nolan picked up the final hit for the Bulldogs (3-4, 1-3) with two outs in the top of the seventh. Nolan took second when Molly Woodward struck out and reached first on a passed ball.

Dardon and Nolan were the only two Bulldogs to reach second base.

Bazylak was the only player in the game with two hits. She had a single and a double. Haley Wong also had a hit for the Vikings to go along with Dehlinger, Lord and Christensen.

Rolison, a freshman, struck out seven Viking batters and walked one.
