    Chiefland travels to Bronson today for a spring scrimmage that begins at 7:30 p.m. The teams combined for 1-19 records in 2010.

    Indians coach Jim O'Neal hopes to see a vast improvement on the fumbles and penalties that were prevalent during an intrasquad scrimmage on Friday.

    "That’s what we’ll work on this week," O'Neal said. "They were not issues during practice. Those are things that happen when you turn the lights on, on a Friday."

  • Sloppy scrimmage

    Penalties, fumbles, a safety and players unsure if they’re on a certain special team made up a typical spring intrasquad scrimmage for Chiefland.

    Hundreds sprinkled the stands and lined the fence on the home side of Wayne Pridgeon Stadium on Friday for a first look at the 2011 Indians. Fans witnessed many miscues, but also got glimpses of greatness as the Gold held off a late rally by the Blue to win 29-26.
