A showdown is set for Friday night.
Navarre and Crestview will square off at Jack Foster Stadium in a battle between two teams that made the postseason a year ago.
It’s the first meeting between the two teams since 2014 when the Raiders rolled to a 21-0 win.
The Raiders are 2-0 and ranked seventh in the state in 6A. The Bulldogs are just outside the top 10 in the latest Associated Press poll, receiving three votes this week.
Navarre topped Washington 27-12 Friday night and Crestview continued its dominance with a 32-0 win over St. Martin out of Mississippi. The Bulldogs have outscored their first two opponents 69-2.
But Navarre has shown its potential as well through the first two weeks. The Raiders dropped 56 on Pensacola Catholic and kept in check a Washington team that had scored 45 the previous week.
The game will be a test for both teams for sure and it’s possible there will be a second meeting between these two teams when the playoffs roll around in November.
