You would also see that defense ruled most of the night as both teams had just less than 200 yards of total offense. However, one statistic does jump out at you, 99 yards, which is how long Newberry athlete Jason Franklin took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown; this proved to be the difference as the Panthers handed the Indians a tough district loss, 17-13.</p> Lady Indians best Lady Red Devils in volleyball http://www.chieflandcitizen.com/content/lady-indians-best-lady-red-devils-volleyball <p> <strong>By Max Yavel</strong></p> <p> <strong>Contributing Writer</strong></p> <p> The Lady Red Devils were on the road last Thursday as they traveled to take on the Chiefland Indians.
