Momentum swing, missed opportunities cost Raiders in district battle with Eagles

| Brian Lester

Ian Sones came running off the field with the ball in his hands. He had just recovered a muffed punt in the end zone for a touchdown that put Navarre ahead of Niceville. Or so he thought.

The referees reversed the third-quarter call, ruling it a touchback, which meant Niceville kept possession, and the Raiders were never the same against the Eagles in this District 1-7A showdown at Eagle Stadium Friday night.
