    Finally, a shutout and some momentum.

    Chiefland had no problem dispatching rival Trenton last Friday night in style, earning its first district victory of the season with a 33-0 win.

  • Jefferson spoils Bronson&...

     It took the mercy rule to end the game after only three quarters as the Jefferson County Tigers from Monticello easily rolled over Bronson 54-0, spoiling the Eagles homecoming game last Friday.

    After the first quarter , the Tigers piled up a 27-0 lead, which began just on the second play from scrimmage, thanks to a 45-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Lenorris Footman to receiver David Crumite. 

  • Chiefland volleyball rebounds in...

     Chiefland’s varsity volleyball team recovered from a first-game defeat to top Bronson 18-25, 25-18, 25-10, 25-13 last Thursday during the Eagles’ homecoming week festivities.

    Chiefland coach Tammy Arrington said that scheduling left the Indians feeling rushed when they arrived at Bronson, leaving them out of focus and scrambling to stay ahead. 

    But they regrouped in the second game, building easy 10-point leads in the final three games to seal the win.

  • Wildcats’ Solomon runs...

    Having three offensive players run for more than 100 yards each is always a good thing.

    When the opponent’s running back nearly matches that on only 10 carries? Not so good.

    Wildwood’s Desmon Solomon torched Chiefland for 287 yards and three monster touchdowns in the Wildcats 35-25 win against the Indians last Friday in both teams’ District 1A-5 opener. The Indians had more than 365 yards of total offense, yet crucial missed tackles and missteps put the game out of reach.

  • Errors doom Bronson in 22-14...

    Bell capitalized on Bronson’s mistakes last Friday night to top the Eagles, 22-14.

    But Bronson (0-4) looked sharp early with a 10-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kelby Barber to Quentell Coleman. Raymie Powers added the extra point and the Eagles took a 7-0 lead with 6:53 remaining in the first quarter.

    Bell responded quickly with 65-yard run from Bradley Denham to even the score. 

    Bell took the lead in the second quarter with a 13-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Daniel Heck to James Oslager.

  • Volleyball: Chiefland falls in...

    Chiefland battled Trenton in three tough games last Tuesday, but the Tigers capitalized on Indians 

    mistakes and big scoring runs to win the match in three games, 25-22, 25-18, 25-17.

    In Game 1, Chiefland fought to gain a quick 6-5 lead, led by some big dives and digs from Kaylee Ecker. Trenton kept pace to tie the game at 11, yet Chiefland later made a run to take a 21-19 lead. But Trenton gained momentum to take Game 1, 25-22.

    After a long, tough Game 2 went to the Tigers, Trenton jumped to a 14-5 lead in Game 3.
