By Ryan Butler

   Giving up 27 unanswered points, the Chiefland High School varsity football team fell 34-7 at Dixie County Friday night. 

Chiefland (5-3, 0-3 in district) suffered its most lopsided defeat of the season in the loss.

    Dominating time of possession, the Bears (5-4, 1-2) scored on all three of their first half possession, including a 19-play, 97-yard drive for the games first score. After Chiefland tied the game on a half-back pass from Deshawn Rolland to Josh Smith, Dixie County went on to score two more touchdowns on passes from quarterback Shaquille Mithcem before half time.

     Carrying a 21-7 lead into half time, Dixie County added another touchdown pass from Mitchem in the third quarter. Cody Mitchell, the recipient of Mitchem's second touchdown pass, picked off Smith in the fourth quarter and returned it for a touchdown, icing the game.
