-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

The Chiefland High boys varsity basketball team looked sharp in its season opener last Tuesday, Nov. 20, dominating host Lafayette County, 58-35.

Guard Marquis Jackson led the way with 17 points. The guard was especially hot from the outside, popping for five 3-point goals. Forward Travis Donald was the only other Indian reaching double figures with 10 points.

"We were balanced,"Indian coach Mark Lundy said. "We were very unselfish. We ran the floor and played good defense."

Lafayette was still alive in football playoffs and missing two of its starters.

Chiefland had a big inside presence with Tommy Sheffield and Delmar Dial. Sheffield finished with 11 rebounds and Dial with eight boards.

"Delmar didn't score, but he was a presence inside ,"Lundy said.

Stephen Davis added six rebounds, while Donald had five.

Donald led the way in steals with four. Jackson had three and Reggie McClendon and Eugene Carter two apiece.

Carter, the freshman point guard, had five assists. Jackson had three and Josh Wasson two.

Chiefland built a 49-25 lead through three quarters. Everyone got lots of playing time.
