Newberry loss stings as Indians enter bye week

-A A +A
By Ryan Butler

Using a formula that has become emblematic of the Chiefland football program, the Newberry High School varsity football team literally and figuratively ran its way to a 16-7 victory on Oct. 5.
The loss puts Chiefland at a pivotal moment as it enters its bye week. The growing playoff hopes from the amazing season took a major hit. Chiefland has four games left. Three are against rivals Williston, Dixie County and Trenton. Two, more importantly, are in district (Dixie County and Baldwin).
“Of our next four games, three are against rivals and one is homecoming. If they can’t get up for that they don’t need to be playing football,” said head coach Aaron Richardson.
In order for the Indians to extend this amazing season, they’ll have to beat both Dixie County and Baldwin and then get some help.
Before that happens,  Chiefland has to address penalties and its running defense. Against arguably the best running team they have faced all season, Chiefland didn’t look as sharp as in the past.
