"We played like a team out of sync … not enough practice time," he said. Three of his starters just wrapped up their volleyball season Saturday, and haven't had much practice time.

"It's going to be a rough November," Craig said.

And the rough ride started Tuesday night when they were handily beaten by the Bulldogs.

South Walton's Mckenzie Perot drew first blood with a jumper, but then Freeport's Mary Kate Myrick sank back-to-back 3s followed by a layup on a turnover to give the 'Dogs an 8-2 lead. By the end of the period, Freeport's Myrick had nailed a couple more 3s and the Bulldogs led 17-15.

At the start of the second quarter, South Walton evened the score on a basket from Ashlyn Sachenbacher. But then the Bulldogs went on a 12-point scoring spree with Katie O'Neal driving the lane for three baskets, plus drilling a 3-pointer. Megan O'Neal finished up the run with a trey and a put-back basket for a 31-17 advantage.

Casey Perot, who finished the night with 15 points, hit a basket for the Seahawks after an almost 5 minute drought.

Freeport's Katie Decker hit a couple of inside shots and the Bulldogs led 35-22 at the half.
