    The Lady Red Devils hosted their rivals, Chiefland, last week and gave them a great match as both team’s played extremely hard.

    Williston wasn’t able to come out on top in this one but the games were competitive and close the whole way. The Red Devils showed incredible resolve — fighting their way back time and time again.

  • Warriors edge Indians

    Anytime an opposing team schedules you on homecoming, the away team seeks to ruin that homecoming celebration. After the Chiefland Indians first offensive play Friday night, it looked like they would do just that against the West Nassau Warriors, as the Warriors watched junior running back Jarquez Williams sprint 53 yards to end zone to give the Indians an early 6-0 lead. However, behind a sold out crowd and a strong second half running game the 4A Warriors were able to slip past the Indians, 28-22. 

  • Indians JV shows mettle against...

    In what was a varsity-type atmosphere Thursday night, the Chiefland Indians JV football team held off an energized Bell Bulldogs’ team 32-26.

    There were numerous fans in attendance, as this was the first JV game in Chiefland since the Indians’ opener was rained out against rival Trenton.

  • CMHS, BMHS Homecoming this week

    Two Levy County schools will be marking their homecoming this week.

    The Lady Red Devils were on the road last Thursday as they traveled to take on the Chiefland Indians. Williston put together three competitive games but were unable to take home a victory against their rivals.

    The opening match started out sluggishly for Williston as they trailed 16-5 early in the game, but they would soon get their legs under them and play up to their potential.

  • Indians travel to West Nassau...

    If you were to look at the stat sheet between Friday night’s district contest between the Newberry Panthers and the Chiefland Indians, you would see that these were two very evenly matched and similar football teams. 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.

  • Stayin’ on track

     LeRoy Davidson was on his way to Kentucky more than a month ago when Bronson Speedway caught his eye.

    He’d gotten out of the racing business years ago, he said, working the last few years as a licensed contractor and having some involvement with a fishing supply business.

    But he wasn’t happy. When he shared that fact with his wife one day, “She said, ‘Why don’t you get back into racing?’”

    Cliff Lohrey’s career as head football coach of the Williston High School Red Devils came to an abrupt halt around 4 p.m. Sunday when Principal Eulin Gibbs fired the seven-month coach and athletic director.

    Gibbs confirmed Monday that it was indeed a termination for those two positions, but he offered Lohrey a certified position at the school, but the former coach declined and then resigned his position as a teacher.

  • The heartbreak of Hamilton County

    The Chiefland Indians made their first road trip of the year Friday night, making the two-hour trek north to Hamilton County in which the Indians fell to the Trojans 33-7.

    This didn’t look like the same Indians team that played at home the last three weeks, as they faced a very athletic and prepared football team that reached the playoffs last season out of District 5.

    The Trojans, with 20 returning seniors, stymied what had been a potent Indians ground attack, as Chiefland finished with a season low 134 yards rushing.
