  • 'Eagle fight' goes to...

    With the easy win over Trenton and a 55-49 overtime loss to Oak Hall, the Bronson Eagles have officially launched this season's rollercoaster ride. Two of the edge-of-the-seat highlights for those keeping score at home: First, team go-to James Rivers suffered a nasty high-ankle sprain with four seconds to go in regulation against Oak Hall and second, the Eagles face longtime district threat Hawthorne on Saturday, possibly without Rivers. It's enough to make an Eagle fan bite his nails.

    After the Trenton win, Haldeman looked ahead to Oak Hall, which he had scouted.

  • Lady Indians look sharp in close...

    Chiefland girls played good basketball in their narrow 58-54 loss to Williston Thursday. Last year, the Lady Indians were less competitive than Head Coach Emily Gore would have liked; this year, with 10 on the current roster, they look athletic and disciplined, ready for their schedule.

    Although Williston is the team to beat in the district, Chiefland never looked overmatched against the Lady Devils, leading 25-20 at the half and down at most 58-42 late in the fourth quarter.

  • Indians clean up in preseason

    Chiefland boys' basketball had a great showing in Williston's preseason Tip-Off Tournament, wiping out Leesburg First Academy in the first game and knocking off North Marion in the second.

  • Indians trample Tigers in...

    At Thursday's Powwow for Chiefland Homecoming, Indians' Head Coach Ajay Ulmer wrote a fat check, knowing his senior-heavy team was good for the tab.

    “For these seniors, we will beat Trenton tomorrow night,” he promised the standing room-only crowd in the CHS auditorium.

    Friday night, the Indians showed up with sacks of money to make good on the coach's promise, pounding Trenton 53-15 and sending the seniors out on a high note.

  • Eagles fall to Bell, finish 4-6

    The Bronson Eagles learned how to succeed this year, posting a record breaking season of four wins, said new head coach Al Cooksey.  The season was also a milestone for the coach.  The Eagles’ win two weeks ago marked Cooksey’s 100th career victory.

    “We’ve come a long way," Cooksey said Friday on Senior Night after a loss to Bell 40-12.  “You all set a standard we can grow by,” he told his team.

  • Indians win on the road

    "We just got after them real good," said Chiefland head coach Ajay Ulmer."

    "Our defense didn't allow them an inch."

    The Indians ran away with a monster win Friday on the road at Hamilton County (Jasper), downing the Trojans 43-6.

    "We were up 28-6 at halftime - they only scored once," Ulmer said.

    Apart from that tiny bite, the Indians got the lions' share of the meal, with Slaughter the founder of the feast.

    "We scored on our first three series," Ulmer said, "and defensively, we allowed only 54 yards of total offense."

  • Indians sweat out win in Dixie

    CROSS CITY - To win on the road is one thing. To win in Cross City is something else.

    The Chiefland High football team time and again overcame adversity in a hostile environment in its season opener last Friday night at Bruce Boyette Field, and used a big second half to score a 28-21 victory over arch-rival Dixie County.

    A heads-up play by Indian linebacker Zach Tyson turned out to be the difference, as he grabbed a loose lateral and ran 15 yards to the end zone for a touchdown with 5:50 remaining in the fourth quarter.

  • A dream deferred

    Friday's 90-minute lightning delay of the preseason matchup between Chiefland and Bronson was, in the end, little more than a dream deferred for the Indians. After 45 minutes of celestial displays, followed by 45 minutes of pelting rain, the teams were finally released to the misty turf, rewarding the patience of their dedicated fans.

    Chiefland won, bursting back onto the field to grab an immediate score on their way to a 46-6 victory over the cross-county Eagles.
