CRESTVIEW — Not that it needed any, but the Niceville High School softball team got plenty of help from Crestview on Friday.

The Bulldogs committed seven errors and misplayed several other balls into hits as the Eagles rolled to a 15-0 District 2-6A win. The game was called after five innings on the mercy rule. 

Niceville (16-1, 8-0) jumped to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Audrey Diekman singled to left, took second on a Kristin Bufkin wild pitch and scored on a single by Kayla Davis.

The run was all Niceville pitcher Christina Rameriz would need as she threw a two-hit shutout.

The Eagles put the game out of reach with a six-run second inning in which they got six hits and the Bulldogs committed four errors.

Niceville added four more runs on five hits in the third inning, three runs on two hits and two errors in the fourth and a run on a hit and error in the fifth.

"I think in a district game it is key to get out to a good start," Eagle coach Danny Hensley said. "We got off to a good start on them and got them back on their heels a little bit.
