Chiefland is one of 16 teams that remain in Class 1A. In other area games, Trenton hammered out 14 hits to defeat Bronson by a 9-0 mercy rule in the District 6-1A title game on Friday. It was Trentonís 24th consecutive win against opponents in its district.
The Tigers, which hosts Hamilton County on May 7, are 23-1 with a 15-2 loss against Chiefland in the final game of the regular season serving as their lone setback. The only chance theyíll have at avenging the loss this season is if both Chiefland and Trenton win their brackets to meet in the state championship game.
Trentonís Corbin Wiggins gave up two hits in five innings to complete the shutout and improve to 9-0 this season. Hunter Parrish, Kyle Wiggins and Stephen Smith each had three hits for coach Todd Bryantís Tigers.
Bronson (13-10) has continued making strides under coach Allen Strickland, a Chiefland graduate. The Eagles are in the state tournament for the first time in 11 years and will play at Melody Christian in Live Oak on May 7.
