Ware leads Bulldogs past Raiders

Friday's game was indicative of Watson's concerns.

The Bulldogs never trailed, but it was only in the final minutes when they were able to put the Raiders (5-13, 1-4) away.

Aaron gave the Bulldogs a quick lead 24 seconds into the game, but Gaitlin Casey, who was the game's leading scorer with 17 points, responded with a score for the Raiders.

Back-to-back baskets by Ware and Aaron pushed the Bulldog lead to 6-2. Casey answered with two more baskets to tie the game with 4:36 left in the first quarter.

A pair of Baylark free throws with 4:05 left in the first put the Bulldogs in front to stay.

Casey continued to do his best to keep the Raiders in striking distance, but the Bulldogs had too many weapons.

A 3-point basket  by Navarre's Jaonte Cunningham closed the Crestview lead to 12-11, but a Ware basket and a 3-pointer by Rashad Bess pushed the lead back to 17-11 at the end of the first period.
