CRESTVIEW — Simply put, two things need to happen Friday night for the Crestview football team to make the playoffs that start two weeks from Friday.

The Bulldogs need to beat Niceville and Choctawhatchee needs to beat Fort Walton Beach.

Crestview and the Eagles kick things off 7 p.m. at Jack Foster Stadium and Bulldog coach Kevin Pettis said he’ll have enough concerns with the team on the other side of the field to keep him from thinking about what is happening in Fort Walton Beach.

“All we can be concerned about is our game,” he said. “We can’t be concerned about all the other stuff. We have to be concerned about playing Niceville.

“We can’t worry about the other game. We have to worry about us because if we don’t beat Niceville, it doesn’t matter what happens in the other game.”

The last time the Bulldogs (4-5, 2-2) beat the Eagles was 1982. Last year, Niceville (4-3. 2-2) beat Crestview 20-10.
