MILTON — Prepping for significant District 3-6A games the next two weeks, Crestview had no problem remaining undefeated following a 40-10 romp past Milton on Friday night at Haywood Hannah Stadium.

The win pushed the Bulldogs to 5-0 on the season. Now waiting in the wings in pivotal games to repeat as district champion is a home game next week with Fort Walton Beach and a dandy showdown at Niceville on Oct. 27.

It was a big offensive night — again — for Crestview, led by Jay Stanton, who rushed for 220 yards and two touchdowns. Rod Bouchard passed for 257 yards and touchdown strikes to Jaden Voisin and Keon Voisin.

Defensively, Marcus Purcell took a fumble recovery 40 yards for a score.

Chipley 49,

Freeport 14

CHIPLEY — Following two explosive performances, Freeport's first winning streak of the season ended in a lopsided loss to undefeated Chipley in a Region 1-1A matchup.

One positive for the Bulldogs was freshman K'wan Powell, who rushed for 164 yards on 17 carries, including touchdown runs of 8 and 72 yards. That performance pushed Powell past the 1,000-yard mark for the season, now standing at 1,139 yards.

"We knew coming into this game that Chipley is a very physical team and talented, too; they didn't show us anything different," said Freeport coach Shaun Arntz. "We weren't physical enough in the trenches offensively and didn't tackle well defensively.

"We have to shake this off, find the silver linings and come back on Monday ready to put our best foot forward."

The win improved Chipley to 6-0 and 4-0 in region play.

Freeport (3-4, 2-3 Region 1A) returns to action next week at Snook Christian Academy in Foley, Ala.

Port St. Joe 41,

Walton 9

PORT ST. JOE — The offensive struggles continued for the Braves in the loss against the powerhouse 1A Sharks.

After a 37-34 win over Freeport on Sept. 15, Walton has now lost three straight and been outscored 112-29 in those games.

Of interest is the series between the two teams dates back to 1946, though the meeting Friday night was the first since 1992. Walton leads the all-time series 20-18.

Walton's only touchdown came in the second quarter on a 68-yard pass from Keane Neal to Eyin Cole. The Braves' other score came on a safety by Javon Graham in the third quarter.

Cole finished with three receptions for 87 yards. Walton's top rusher was Vinson Flowers with 23 yards on 10 carries.

A big game for Port St. Joe was turned in by Jasmin Thomas, who rushed for 155 yards on 17 carries and scored touchdowns on a blocked punt, 55-yard run and 20-yard reception.

The win improved the Sharks to 6-1 on the season. Port St. Joe suffered its only loss last week against undefeated Class AA Autauga Academy, 45-28, from Prattville, Ala.

Walton (2-5) looks to right the ship next week at home against Holmes County.

Aucilla Christian 62,

Rocky Bayou 27

MONTICELLO — The Knights are still looking for their first win of the season following the North Florida Football Conference loss to the Warriors (3-2, 1-1 NFFC).

Rocky Bayou (0-6, 0-3 NFFC) was led by Caleb Preston who rushed 24 times for 193 yards and a touchdown while also returning a kickoff for a score.

David Denbow rushed for 98 yards on 18 carries and had the Knights' other touchdown of the game.

Rocky Bayou returns to 1A regional play next week in a home game against Munroe at Meigs Middle School.
