  • Blue Wave rolls again

    Chiefland almost got that P.K. Yonge monkey off its back before finally losing 12-10 against the Blue Wave on Friday.

    The Indians (4-2 overall, 2-1 in District 5-2A play) trailed 10-2 before rallying with two runs in the fifth and seven more in the sixth to take an 11-10 lead. However, two errors and three hits by the Blue Wave (6-0, 4-0) allowed it to regain the lead heading into the final inning.  P.K. Yonge left-handed pitcher Justin Landers (2-0) retired three of the final four Indians to complete the win.

    Chiefland's Amber Richardson has verbally committed to play fastpitch softball for the Santa Fe Saints next year, SF coach Chris Ahern announced in a press release.

    “Amber throws the ball hard,” said Ahern, “and her moving pitches jump pretty well.  She will be an asset to our pitching staff, and should be able to contribute in the lineup as well.”

  • Bronson 'grew up' in...

    After a disappointing loss against P.K. Yonge to open the season, a young Bronson club matured during a 9-2 home loss against Branford on Tuesday.

    Facing a 6-0 deficit after three innings, Bronson kept battling. Branford right-hander Donny Johnson retired 10 of the first 12 batters he faced before the Eagles finally scratched for a couple of runs in the fourth.

    Matt Olivarria singled and Brock Brower worked a two-out walk. Both would later score on an error.

  • Indians blast Eagles

    Shortstop Timmy Reidy went sliding to his right on one knee to backhand a sharp grounder in the hole before firing to first base. The ball beat the runner by a step, capping Chiefland’s 11-3 win at Bronson on Thursday.

  • Chiefland picks 6th

    When Josh Martinez fell behind 0-2 in the count with two outs in the sixth inning against Branford, Chiefland players started searching for their gloves in the dugout.

    It wasn’t that they didn’t have confidence in their teammate. It’s just that the odds are stacked against any batter getting on base when down 0-2, and players figured they’d be heading out to play defense in a matter of seconds.
