  • Despite late push, Branford...

    Bronson’s offense came alive in the second half, scoring 24 unanswered points last Friday night against Branford.

    It’s a shame the Eagles were already down 57-0 when the scoring started.

    Branford pummeled visiting Bronson 63-24, totaling 367 rushing yards as team and hammering the Eagles’ defense early.

    The Buccaneers also capitalized early on Bronson’s mistakes, opening the scoring with a 65-yard punt return for a score by John Perry after the Eagles’ first drive stalled. A two-point conversion gave Branford a quick 8-0 lead.

  • Blue Wave sinks Indians in 2A-5...

     BELL — Chiefland High School’s volleyball team found a sudden spark in its third game against P.K. Yonge on Tuesday night, making a district powerhouse look not just mortal, but vulnerable.

    But it was too little, too late as the Blue Wave swept the Indians, 25-10, 25-5, 25-19, knocking them out of the District 2A-5 Tournament.

  • Indians triumph in homecoming

    Chiefland’s offense came alive late as the Indians rolled past Hamilton County 21-7 last Friday night to win their homecoming game.

    But with that test behind them, the Indians now prepare for what could be their biggest test of the season next Friday.

    After defeating the winless Trojans (0-6, 0-3 in District 1A-5), Chiefland (3-4, 2-2) has this week off to prepare for district foe Dixie County, who are undefeated in 1A-5 play this year and 6-1 overall.

  • Bronson stumbles in second half

    Bronson battled St. Joseph to a 14-14 tie at halftime last Friday night, but five Flashes touchdowns in the second half — four in the fourth quarter — were too much for the Eagles in a 48-22 defeat.

    it wasn’t just a surging St. Joseph offense that did the Eagles in, it was also penalties. The Eagles totaled 17 penalties for 125 yards, including four personal fouls.

  • Area schools eye district...

     The District 2A—5 volleyball tournament kicks off next week, and both Chiefland and Bronson face big challenges at the event.

    The tournament official kicks off on Saturday with the play-in game. No. 8 seed and tournament host Bell will face No. 9 seed Hawthorne.

    No. 4 Chiefland kicks off the tournament against No. 5 Branford. The two teams last played on Oct. 14, the Indians’ Senior Night. Chiefland outlasted Branford in a four-game, 21-25, 25-20, 25-21, 25-15 victory.

    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.
