  • Williston blanks Chiefland 48-0...

     From the start, Williston was in control, while the Indians could only see red.

    Williston easily retained the Levy Cup for the second year in a row last Friday with a 48-0 blowout of county rival Chiefland.

    The Red Devils (3-0) pounced early with a 23-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dalton Edwards to running back Deonte Welch on their opening possession. The Indians followed with a 3-and-out that was stamped with quarterback Eugene Carter getting sacked on 3rd and 9.

  • Bronson rallies, but falls late...

    DAYTONA BEACH — Daytona Beach Father Lopez needed to hold off a fourth-quarter Bronson rally to beat Bronson 27-22 last Friday night.

    Bronson, which struggled against the Lopez defense, stayed in the game with big plays. Its first two touchdowns came on a 43-yard interception return and an 85-yard kickoff return.

    After the Green Wave’s Taylor Crimmins scored his second touchdown — a 33-yard run around the left end — Lopez (1-2) was up 27-14 with 4:49 remaining in the game.

  • Volleyball: Chiefland finds...

     Chiefland swept Bell in three games last Tuesday to go above the .500 mark for the first time this season.

    The Indians defeated the Lady Bulldogs, 25-10, 25-16, 25-16. Chiefland also defeated Dixie on Thursday.

    In Game 1 Chiefland jumped to a quick 5-1 lead and never looked back to easily take the quick victory.

    Bell challenged some in the second game, but  a decisive kill by Kacey Miller to make it 12-6 regained momentum for the Indians.

  • Youth Football: Chiefland tops...

     Randy Fuller scored the only touchdown of the day, handing Chiefland a 6-0 victory last Saturday in youth football action.

    Branford staged a late drive in an attempt to tie the game, but Fuller also secured the win with an interception. Chiefland improved to 1-1 for the season.

    In Saturday's other game, the Chiefland Braves lost to SVL Red, 52-8.

  • Bronson routed by Bishop Snyder...

     “I’m proud of them, not mad at them,” Bronson Eagles coach Al Cooksey said following Friday’s one-sided home loss, 52-14, at the hands of Jacksonville Bishop Snyder. “We didn’t give up at all.”

    “They are a large 2B team that have just been allowed into our conference this year,” Cooksey said. “We had to play them. We didn’t choose to.”
