NICEVILLE — A strong Niceville boys soccer team was too much for Crestview to handle Thursday night in a District 1-4A contest.

The Eagles used an aggressive and attacking style of play to stymie the Bulldogs on both ends of the field.

When the final whistle sounded the Eagles had a 4-0 win over Crestview.

Crestview coach Scottie Milton said the Bulldogs (0-2, 0-2) were unable to match the strength of the Eagles.

“Niceville is one of the top teams in the state and they came out pretty physical this game,” he said. “We really couldn’t match their physicality that they had. We just have to get a little better.”

Niceville (1-1, 1-0) drew first blood less than 10 minutes into the match when Colton Savage scored after a mad scramble in front of the net.
