North Santa Rosa

Week 7 Insider

Last week did not go according to plan for Milton, Pace, and Jay. All three lost their season opening district games. This week the Panthers, Patriots, and Royals will all try and bounce back in what appears to be winnable games for all three schools.

Cottondale(4-2) @ Jay (0-6)-Kickoff 7:00pm

It’s homecoming for the Royals as they host the Hornets from Cottondale. Jay has had their struggles this year with injuries and turnovers, but have not quit or given up on a season that has been extremely difficult and frustrating. Last week, Jay couldn’t stop Baker on the big plays and lost their first district game of the season. Cottondale has been a team that Royals have not had much trouble with in the past few years, winning the last three, but this Cottondale team is going to try and  wreck homecoming for the Royals. Last week, Cottondale beat winless North Bay Haven Academy 42-7.

Last year, Jay beat Cottondale 64-36.

Crestview(3-3) @ Milton (4-2)-Kickoff 7:00pm

Last week was a tough one for the Panthers as they lost to Gulf Breeze. Not only was it the Panthers’ first district game, but it was also homecoming. After starting the season 4-0, Milton is reeling after losing the last two and would love nothing else than to get back in the win column when they host Crestview this week. Crestview has been a little inconsistent thus far in the 2015 season and last week lost to Choctaw, 21-6. Look for the Panthers to try and spread out the Bulldogs this week.

Last year, Milton beat Crestview 28-14.

Tate(4-1) @ Pace (2-4)-Kickoff 7:30pm

You want intrigue? You want drama? You might want to be at Pace High School on Friday night. When Pace hosts Tate, those on hand will be able to witness something that doesn’t happen very often…father vs. son. Mickey Lindsay, the long time Patriot head coach will be coaching against his son, Jay Lindsay, who is in his first year as a head coach. This game would be entertaining if the coaches had different last names, but add that factor into it, and this is a must see matchup. Tate has been on a roll all year, only losing to Niceville 35-32. Pace has been up and down, playing just about every opponent well into the fourth quarter. Should be a good one.

Last year, Tate and Pace did not play each other.
