Raiders fall out of top 10 in AP poll

Navarre fell out of the Associated Press 6A football poll Tuesday after suffering a 31-28 upset loss to rival Gulf Breeze Friday night.

The Raiders (8-1), who had their 20-game regular-season win streak snapped in a showdown for the District 2-6A crown,  were ranked sixth in the state last week. Despite dropping out of the poll, the Raiders remain on the edge of the top 10 after picking up 16 votes. Gulf Breeze (8-1) received six votes.

Niceville (8-1) dropped out of the poll as well. The Eagles were ranked eighth last week but suffered a 27-21 loss to Crestview. The Eagles picked up nine votes this week. Navarre and Niceville square off this Friday night in Niceville in the final game of the regular season. Both teams are already assured of playoff berths, with the Raiders opening up postseason play against Escambia in two weeks in Pensacola.

Mainland (9-0) remains the No. 1 team in the state in 6A and got nine first-place votes this week. Ocala Vanguard (8-0) is second in the state and received two first-place votes. Third-ranked Miami Northwestern (8-1) earned three first-place votes.
