Indians take hard hit

-A A +A

Indians' head coach Ajay Ulmer said Chiefland played very well in the first half of the 49-13 loss to Ocala Trinity Catholic, but that still doesn't make losing OK.

"We had some breakdowns in the second half, some missed assignments," he said. "Our practice on Monday is going to be pretty intense - we have to make sure stuff like this doesn't happen again."

That said, Ulmer is very proud of the Indians' play in the first half, which Trinity escaped carrying a bare 14-13 lead.

"We definitely executed our game plan in the first half, just trying to get first downs and sustain long drives, and we did that," Ulmer said. "We had the ball most of the first quarter, and we were down only one at the half."

Ulmer said some early mistakes cost Chiefland a chance to lead, noting, "We had a penalty that lost us an opportunity to score - we really should have scored one more time."

The whole team stepped up in an outstanding first half effort, led by Zach Tyson under center, standing in for the injured Brent Slaughter.
