NICEVILLE — The Crestview High School football team was flying high after beating Niceville 17-12 Friday to end a 30 year losing streak and force a tiebreaker in District 1-7A play.

Monday the Bulldogs were grounded as they saw their playoff aspirations slip out of their fingers in a 7-6 loss to Tate at Eagle Stadium. They were then forced to wait and hope for an Aggie win over Niceville in the second quarter of play, but it was not to be.

The Eagles beat the Aggies 14-0 to take first place in the district. Tate finished second.

As for the Bulldogs they were left to wonder what might have been if not for a costly fumble and mixed extra point against Tate.

Crestview won the toss and elected to receive.

The Aggie kick sailed into the end zone and the Bulldogs started play at their own 20-yard line.

A run by quarterback Corey Armstrong gained five yards. And a pass from Armstrong to Khalil Foster picked up another five giving Crestview a first down at the 31.
