The opening minutes of the game were all Crestview as the Bulldogs jumped to an 11-0 lead and never trailed.

Arianna Simms, Malia Gandy, Jasmine Middle and Kerrie York benefitted from a tenacious Crestview press that lead to easy baskets in the first two-and-a-half minutes of the game.

Madison McNabb, who led the Eagles (5-7, 1-4) in scoring with 10, finally got Niceville on the scoreboard with 4:15 left in the first quarter.

Molly Woodward then scored the next five points for the Bulldogs (6-6, 1-4) hitting a pair of free throws in the place of an injured Gandy and then draining a long 3-pointer to put the Bulldogs up 16-2 with 3:31 left in the first period.

Hannah Schroeder hit a couple of baskets for Niceville in the closing minutes of the period to make the score 16-6 after one.

The Eagles tried to play catch up the rest of the night.

A pair of Elise Stuart 3-pointers in the second quarter helped the Eagles close to within four of the Bulldogs at the end of the first half.
