As for continuing the district win streak, Niceville isn’t concerned with past accolades.

“We haven’t even talked about the district final or winning that,” Nelson said. “We try not to focus on the previous year because this is a completely different team and we only brought back four returning starters.”

So what’s been the key to the Eagles’ success?

“It’s always been our ability to play as a team first,” Nelson said. “The only way to keep the playoff streak alive is to play as a team.”

As for whom the Eagles will face in the semis, it is up in the air considering Crestview and Tate tied 1-1 on Dec. 13.

“Who’s to say who’ll say win? It should be a good match,” Nelson said.

As for the top of the bracket, it looks like second-seeded Navarre and third-seeded Fort Walton Beach are on a collision course for the semifinals.
