A dream deferred

-A A +A
By Jenna McKenna

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.

Chiefland looked totally dominant in the game, driving 43 yards to score on their first series on a four-yard punch by Tommy Sheffield. With Zach Tyson's PAT kick good, they led 7-0 with 5:33 left in the first quarter. They did it again only two minutes later, this time on a 29-yard lope by Sheffield, leading 14-0 after eight minutes.
