Niceville, FL---It is, to say the least, a rather big football game set for Tommy Oliver Thursday night, as Niceville comes east to take on Mosley in a 6-A district two affair.
For the Eagles, it's basically a playoff game after, despite playing rather well on offense, they lost their last two games, both in district, to Navarre and Choctaw.
"We lost a couple of close games the last weeks you know, 35-28, 31-28." says Niceville head coach John Hicks. "You know obviously we've got to play a little better on defense giving up 28 points. So we gotta do...that's the first thing for us. Second thing is we've just had a lot of injuries, we've had to battle through. You know starting quarterback, starting tailback, starting defensive back. So we're just battling the injury bug a little bit too right now."
Thursday's game just as big for Mosley, who lost their only district game, they certainly don't want to be oh-2 in league play. That game at 7.
