As good a loss as any

-A A +A

Even with the loss, Chiefland football impresses

By Ryan Butler

A good coach will tell you there is no such thing as a “moral” victory. Only results, in the long run, matter. But for a team that on this date a year ago had to be wondering if it would ever win again, last Friday brought about a good a loss as you could hope for.
Chiefland played the No. 1 team in its classification tight for four quarters. Playing a 1A powerhouse in an 8A-caliber stadium, the Indians showed its first three games were no flukes. Chiefland might not be knocking off state championship-level teams quite yet. But they’re close.  Even with the loss, it’s clear Chiefland football is back.
Union County knows it too. Facing a fourth-and-one, and featuring plenty of athletes capable of gaining one yard, Tigers coach Ronny Pruitt decided to punt instead of take on the Chiefland defense. There may be no greater sign of respect. On top of that, Chiefland’s defense is giving up less than seven points per game.
