Williston holds off scrappy Indians

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

The big boys were back on the court for Chiefland High last Friday night, just in time for intra-county rival Williston.

The Indians played their hearts out, but the talented Red Devils were too much in posting a 68-51 decision.

Williston improved its overall record to 11-5 and its Class 3A District 5 mark to 6-2 –good for second place behind P.K. Yonge.

Meanwhile, Chiefland lost its eighth straight game and fell to 7-14. The Indians are just 1-8 in district.

Having served a week suspension for their part in a Jan. 10 fight against Fort White, the Indians varsity players got the green light to play again at 2 p.m. Friday from the Florida High School Activities Association.

The junior varsity had filled in at the varsity level for three games.

The big boys played like they had something to prove, hanging with the jumping Devils into the third quarter.

Earlier in the season in Williston, Chiefland lost by 35 points to the Devils in a blowout.

This time, they were able to hang around.

Stephen Davis banked in a 35-foot shot at the buzzer to end the first quarter, keeping the Indians close at 17-15.
