  • 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. 

  • Week 4 Football: Wildwood 35,...

     Wildwoods Desmon Solomon ran for 297 yards and scored three big touchdowns as the Wildcats defeated the Indians, 35-25.

    Chiefland's Eugene Carter, Jakarr White and Jamantye Thompson each tallied more than 100 yards on the ground. Carter led the Indians in an attempted comeback in the fourth quarter, but was stopped as Chiefland lost its district opener.

  • 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.
