Indians ride Blue Wave to district win

-A A +A

"Tonight we played a complete game," Indians head coach Ajay Ulmer said. "We wore them down, and then we capitalized on it."

Chiefland football got back to .500 and looked back on track with a decisive 35-14 win over district rival P.K. Yonge Friday. Two quick scores in the first quarter got them a nice cushion, but it was tough play in the trenches through the middle of the game that made it possible to put the Blue Wave away for good.

Tommy Sheffield was the ballcarrier on the Indians' first two scores, first with a five-yard run and then with a 60-yard run, all in the first five minutes of play. With one good extra point kick by Garrett Schmidt, Chiefland led 13-0, a nice lead when a potential disaster occurred.

While trying to advance over midfield with under two minutes left in the first quarter, the Indians fumbled and Wave defender Autis Gibson scooped the ball up for a 20-yard touchdown return. From a shutout position, P.K. was suddenly very much alive.
