Big plays doom Indians in homecoming against Hawthorne

The Chiefland football team found itself in a 7-on-7 type of match against Hawthorne, and it didn’t go well.

The Hornets struck on a pair of early touchdowns for at least 50 yards apiece, setting the tone for an offensive onslaught that found them leading by 34 by halftime.

Hawthorne (5-1) went on to capture a 44-7 win, putting a damper on CMHS’ homecoming, and likely knocking the Indians from playoff contention.

The Indians fell to 3-4. All four of their losses are to teams headed for the playoffs.

Hawthorne’s only loss was in overtime against Union County (Lake Butler). UCHS is currently the favorite to take the fourth playoff spot in Region 1A-3. Top-ranked Madison County, Dixie County and Lafayette (Mayo) remain undefeated and are virtually guaranteed the other three playoff berths in Chiefland’s region. The Hornets are in Regional 1A-4 with Williston and Bronson.

The Indians next play host to Bronson (0-6) Friday Oct. 20 for senior night. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
