Chiefland beats Bronson 14-12 in Spring Game

-A A +A

Ground game leads the way for Indians in win

By Ryan Butler

The Chiefland High School football team defeated Bronson 14-12 at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium on May 25 in the school's annual spring game. Chiefland controlled much of the game with a strong running attack.  The time-consuming ground game, along with the team's hard-nosed defensive play, kept an aggressive Bronson team from pulling away after it took an early lead. It also allowed Chiefland to come out on top. 

Trailing 12-7 at the start of the fourth quarter, the Indians executed an eight-play drive that ended in a bulldozing five-yard touchdown-run by Keith Smith. The Indian's first lead since the second quarter would not be threatened again. Chiefland's defense forced a four-and-out by the Eagles on the ensuing possession. The Indians then held the ball for the rest of the game. In its final possesion, CHS ran the ball on 11-straight plays, running out the remainder of the game clock in the process.
