Niceville and Choctaw entered this game both undefeated at 3-0. With a crowd estimated at 9,000 fans packed into Eagle Stadium, the highly anticipated contest was over quickly as Niceville raced to an early 28-0 1st quarter lead, en route to a 56-3 win.
11 seconds into the contest, Tyre McCants, took the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. A few players later, Niceville's 2015 Bryson Houston ripped the ball out the hands of Choctaw running back John Hicks (no relation to Niceville's Head Coach John Hicks, Jr.) and the very next play the sophomore sensation, Elijah Stove trotted in for a 30 yard rushing TD.
With highly recruited Shi'kim Coward resting on the sidelines next to Oklahoma star and former Eagle Roy Finch, Niceville's Tayjon Culley rushed for 144 yards, 2 TDs, while QB Ashton Hooker accounted for 3 TDs, McCants, scored three TDs, Stove with 2 TDs, and Junior QB John Secord rounded out the scoring with a 1 yard TD.
Rickards downs Fort Walton
After knocking off Okaloosa County's Crestview High School last week, Rickards used a 27-0 run to beat Fort Walton Beach 27-7 making the school from Tallahassee 2-0 against Okaloosa county teams.
FWB's Junior QB Colby Tuthill was harassed all night and was sacked four times. Tuthill, making his first start, threw four interceptions, the last of which was returned 36 yards for a touchdown by Tramanye Holmes, giving Rickards a 27-7 lead with four minutes to go in the fourth quarter.
The pick by Holmes was indicative of a Raider defense that limited Fort Walton Beach to just two first downs in the second half.
Rickards improves to 4-0 while FWB drops to 2-2.
