  • Bronson football unable to dig out from early deficit at Branford

    Putting together a complete game in all three phases is that oft-elusive goal that all good football teams strive for.

    The Bronson football team has shown it’s capable of standing toe to toe with opponents for long stretches, but a successful four quarters has so far remained out of reach.

    At Branford (3-2) last Friday, the Eagles (0-4) were unable to ultimately dig out of a 12-0 hole, but managed to give the Buccaneers a scare on their homecoming night, as BMHS fell 20-12 on the road.

    Chiefland has little time to lick its wounds after suffering its first loss on the season at Newberry last Friday, as the most accomplished team in Class 1A football over the last three seasons, No. 3 Trenton, comes to town.

    “We’ve got two huge ones coming up,” CMHS coach Aaron Richardson said following his team’s 42-0 loss last week. “It’s huge district implications (Friday), so we’ve got to get ready in a hurry, because, no doubt about it, Trenton’s a pretty good football team.”

  • Chiefland suffers first loss of season at Newberry

    The Chiefland football team had a stern enough challenge on its hands at Newberry last Friday.

    The Indians, already a relatively young team without a lot of experienced depth, were facing what figures to be one of its toughest opponents on the season, particularly on the defensive line, and were short-handed coming in.

    CMHS was strong out of the gate, picking up three first downs on the game’s opening possession, and holding the ball for more than nine minutes in the first quarter.

  • Top volleyball squads in district meet in Chiefland Thursday
