CMHS outlasts Dixie in back-and-forth tilt

Chiefland needed a win against rival Dixie County in its district finale to ensure itself the valuable No. 3 seed in the upcoming tournament.

The Indians were resilient in their effort, trading leads with the Bears before securing the final advantage for a 7-6 win at home, culminating CMHS’ Diamond Days Week in style.

Big hits by Wyatt Hammond and Elijah Smith (double) punctuated a three-run rally in the second inning to put the Indians ahead 3-0. After CMHS surrendered its lead in the top-half of the third, senior third baseman Seth Thomas drove in Hammond to tie it up in the bottom-half of the same frame. In the fourth, Will Sumner bunted in Keegan McLelland to give Chiefland back the lead. Sophomore call-up Luke Reidy, who was in for an injured Josh Webber, ripped a double to pick up Hammond and extend the lead to 6-4. Dixie County answered with a pair of runs off a CMHS error, before Smith knocked in Hammond for the final go-ahead run in the sixth.
