Nice upset, Fort Walton Beach.


Ahead of Saturday’s tilt against Choctaw at Steve Riggs Stadium, the Vikings girls soccer team scored a 2-1 road win over perennial power Navarre on Thursday night.


Mariah Manthey and Dana Cruz found the back of the net for the Vikings, who received eight saves from captain Trinity Chastain. Makenzi Maltezo and Adriana Figueroa accounted for the assists for the Vikings, who jumped out to a 2-0 lead by the 31st minute.


Maia Vacks got Navarre on the board with an unassisted goal in the 44th minute, but the Raiders got nothing more against a defense led by captain Colby Orcutt and Kayla Sibert.


It was the second straight loss for Navarre, which falls to 7-3-1 headed into Saturday’s home matchup against Chiles at 10 a.m. The Raiders have outscored foes 34-16 on the season and close the year with a home matchup against rival Gulf Breeze on Dec. 19.


The Vikings, meanwhile, have won two of three to improve to 3-4 and have outscored opponents 17-11 on the campaign. They host Choctaw (4-5) Saturday at 2 p.m. before ending the year with a trip to Escambia on Dec. 17.
