  • Bronson falls to St. Joseph Academy

    ST. AUGUSTINE -- Quintell Coleman ran the opening kickoff back 90 yards, but that was one of the few bright spots for Bronson in a 51-12 loss to St. Joseph Academy’s football team Friday night.

    Coleman caught a 43-yard TD pass before halftime, making the score a respectable 22-12 at the break. But the Flashes exploded for 29 points in the third period and that set up a running clock to finish the game.

    St. Joe rushed for 290 yards, while Bronson ran for just 37.

  • Red Devils bruise Bulldogs

       Just as the Williston Red Devils appear to be putting their offense and defense together, they now face a bye week before continuing their quest for a District Championship.
       The Red Devils made the long journey down to Umatilla Friday night Oct. 8, to face an improving Bulldog team.
       Had it not have been for a second quarter 24-yard field goal by the Bulldogs, the Red Devil defense would have come away with a shut out in their 43-3 district win.

  • Williston spoils Bronson's volleyball senior night

       The Eagles came out on a roll, opening the match with inspired performances, led by Brittany Smith (five kills in Game 1) and Ashley Mickle (two big blocks) to take a 13-7 lead. The Red Devils battled back, narrowing the game to 18-15 with two aces from Katie Casperson. But Bronson held off to take the first game off a Williston service error.

  • Girls fall

    On Tuesday night, some of the fans who made their way to the Red Devil Gym for the JV Volleyball match were surprised, there was no game. In a scheduling problem the Lady Mustangs JV failed to show for the match.

    The varsity team for the Lady Mustangs however, did show up for the match against the Lady Red Devils.

    The Lady Mustangs had to go to the five-game limit to outlast the Lady Red Devils. The scores were 25-20, 23-25, 25-11, 16-25, and 15-7 for the win.

  • Red Devils take a hit from Highlanders

    It was as if the Red Devils ran out to a 14-3 lead early in the game Friday night, Oct. 1, at Booster Stadium, and then the entire team cramped up in the second quarter in the 51-20 loss.

    It was Lake Highland Prep, ranked No. 9 in the state, that came to life after falling behind in the first seven minutes of the game. 

    The Red Devils received the opening kickoff as Brandon Preston fielded the kick from the Highlanders 20th ranked high school kicker in the nation, Michael Rasmusen.

  • WHS JV wins

    Thursday night, Sept. 30, at Booster Stadium, the Williston JV Red Devils faced the Newberry Panthers JV football team.

    Make no mistake, Newberry is a very good team. But the Red Devils pulled out the win 36-28, raising their record to 2-1, only getting to count five of their 10 touchdowns scored.  

    True, it was just a JV game, but the officials were surely JV as well. 

    Newberry took the opening kickoff and found paydirt in just five plays. The two-point conversion was good and the Panthers found themselves up 8-0.

  • Indians scalp Lady Red Devils

    Chiefland High School’s volleyball team outlasted a surging Williston this past Monday night, defeating the Red Devils in five games, 25-19, 25-16, 21-25, 22-25, 15-13.

    The Indians were in control in the first game, rebounding from a 3-1 deficit to eventually take the lead at 12-11, thanks to two kills by Taylore Fuller. Chiefland expanded its lead to 18-13, holding out for the Game 1 win with a 5-3 run.

  • JV falls to Dixie County

        It took the Dixie County JV football team a little over a half of football Thursday night September 23, to hold on to the football. Once the Bears figured out they needed to hold onto the ball, they came from behind to down the Red Devil JV team 16-6.

    The first half saw the Red Devils unable to move the football, and the Bears stopped themselves on several drives deep in Red Devil territory. The Red Devils were unable to cross the 50 yard line until the last play of the half. 

  • Red Devils beat Keystone Heights in district play

    It was a sluggish first half of high school district action  Sept. 24, as the Red Devils visited Keystone Heights and won 26-13. Both teams’ defenses and turnovers controlled the first half of action. 

    The Indians got on the board early in the first quarter on a nifty 48-yard run to take a 6-0 lead as the extra point kick went wide right.

  • Eagles get revenge on Green Wave

       It was, at times, brutal. Other times, it was inspired.
       But in the end, Bronson came out of their battle with Daytona Beach Father Lopez with a narrow 8-7 victory last Friday night.
       The victory served as a revitalization for the Eagles, who now set their sights on a tough Bell program Friday.
       It was also a complete turnaround from last season, when Father Lopez topped Bronson, 27-22, in another close matchup.
