Chiefland Baseball Falls in District Semi-Finals

6-4 Loss Ends Season

By Ryan Butler

The 2012 Chiefland High School baseball team faced a lot of challenges during their season. The most important turned out to be a two-run lead in the bottom of the seventh. 

The Indians left the go-ahead run at the plate in the top of the seventh inning in their District 1A-7 semi-final game against Newberry. The loss ended a season that saw the Indians take a difficult beginning and turn it into an above-.500 record. 

"We are not the same team we were at the beginning of the season," said head coach Kyle Parnell. The Indians record proved it. CHS lost only three times in their final 11 games. 

The didn't go quietly in their final game. Trailing 6-2 heading into the sixth, Tim Reidy lead off the inning with a triple. Peyton Parnell followed it up with an RBI single. Two grounders later, John Ward had knocked Parnell home and the lead was down to two. 

Reidy allowed the Panthers’ No. 3 hitter Adrian Gonzalez and No. 4 hitter Scott Dobbins reach base with two outs in the bottom of the sixth. A huge strikeout ended the inning and the threat.
