Indians give up season-high point total in shoot-out loss

-A A +A

CHS is 5-4 heading into Senior Night finale against Trenton

By Ryan Butler




The defense for the Chiefland High School varsity team hasn’t faced many teams that throw as often as Baldwin. They have faced no one with a quarterback like Jordan Mullis.

Led by its senior quarterback, Baldwin (4-5, 1-3 in district 1A-7) won a shoot-out over Chiefland 54-42 in both team’s district finale. While the ground game for Chiefland (5-4, 0-4) put together one of its most impressive performances on the season, the defense wasn’t able to stop the visiting Indians’ spread attack, particularly the man leading it.

Mullis finished 15 of 25 for 210 yards and four touchdowns against CHS. He also chipped in 26 yards on the ground, averaging over five yards per attempt. 

Chiefland was able to snuff out other pass-happy teams like P.K. Yonge and Williston earlier this season. As the season schedule hasn’t gotten harder, Chiefland hasn’t been able to match up with their opponents after a 4-1 start. If it’s any consolation for the slumping Indians, none of those teams had a quarterback with the skills of Mullis.
