  • Red Devils finish regular season...

    It wasn't pretty for either team in their final regular season game. Both teams had numerous turnovers and both teams had trouble keeping the yellow flags off the field.

    But the Red Devils proved to be the better team as they ran and passed their way past the Union County Tigers 25 -14 in a game that looked like pre season for both teams.

    For the Tigers, this was their last game for the 2009 season as they finished with a 4-6 over all record.

  • Late gust puts Hurricanes over...

    There are a lot of “ifs” remaining for the Williston Red Devils’ chances to make the playoffs after they fell short Friday night 16-13, to the Mt. Dora Hurricanes.

    “If” the Red Devils can go to Newberry Friday night Nov. 6, and defeat the Panthers, (something they have failed to do the last three seasons) and “if” Mt. Dora loses to Trinity Catholic as every other District 4 team has experienced, there will be a three-way tie for the runner-up spot.

  • New coach at WHS

    After last season ended for the boy’s basketball team one game short of the “final four” in the Regional Finals, Williston coach Dave Vespignani accepted a position in Houston, Texas.

    Vespignani’s Red Devil team graduated just one player from the 21-9 team and had a JV team that finished their season 13-1.

    Enter new head varsity basketball coach Steve Faulkner.

  • Williston goes down in blaze to...

    The Williston Red Devils spent last week with a bye week and they were 2-0 in district play and 5-1 overall just one point shy of being undefeated.

    The Friday night game at Ocala Trinity Catholic was not what the Red Devils were wanting to happen going back into action.

    The Trinity Catholic Celtics struck early as they completely dominated the first half of the game on their way to a 35-0 half time lead, en route to a 57-14 win over the Red Devils.

  • Patterson returns to hardwood...

    Robert Patterson will be taking over the Williston Lady’s basketball program as head coach this season. Patterson previously coached the Lady Red Devils from 1986-2005 and had many successful seasons.

    “I remember my first year in 1986 when our team went 6-13. It did not feel good and I never had a losing season after that for 18years,” Patterson said.

  • Buccaneers pillage Bronson

    Bronson’s offense came alive in the second half, scoring 24 unanswered points last Friday night against Branford.

    It’s a shame the Eagles were already down 57-0 when the scoring started.

    Branford pummeled visiting Bronson 63-24, totaling 367 rushing yards as a team and hammering the Eagles’ defense early.

    The Buccaneers also capitalized early on Bronson’s mistakes, opening the scoring with a 65-yard punt return for a score by John Perry after the Eagles’ first drive stalled. A two-point conversion gave Branford a quick 8-0 lead.

  • Red Devils sear Bulldogs in...

    The Williston Red Devils raised their season record to 5-1 and 2-0 in district play as they blitzed district foe the Umatilla Bulldogs Friday night 42-7.

    It was a game that could have been much worse for the Bulldogs had Red Devils Coach Derek Chipoletti not called off his starters after the first nine minutes of the game.

  • Eagles grasp Quincy in talons...

    The long wait is finally over for Al Cooksey’s Eagles.

    Bronson battled for its first win of the season last Friday with a 31-12 rout of Quincy Munroe.

    Eagles quarterback Kelby Barber finished strong on both sides of the ball, with 3-for-5 passing for 96 yards on offense, and with four tackles, three assisted tackles, two fumble recoveries and an interception on defense.

    “It was a good feeling, and a long bus ride,” Bronson coach Cooksey said. “But it was worth it. We played a good team and we played or best game of the year.”

  • Lady Mustangs gallop past Lady...

    The Meadow Brook Lady volleyball team took the first game on the chin before galloping past the Lady Red Devils for the match Monday night Oct. 12, at the Red Devil gym.

    Winning the first game 27-25 the Lady Devils played like they were going to ride the Mustangs into the ground. Kill shots from Haley Beckham and Mallary Brochetti led the Lady Devils to the first game win.

  • Red Devils fall in last 12...

    After surviving a first half that saw the Williston Red Devils put the football on the ground three times and give up an interception, the Red Devils trailed the Lake Highland Prep Highlanders 17-12.

    The Highlanders scored on their first possession to take a 7-0 lead. Red Devil quarterback Dalton Edwards scored foe the Red Devils with 4:06 remaining in the first quarter. The extra point kick failed and the Highlanders held a 7-6 lead.

    On the first play of the second quarter the Highlanders kicked a field goal to take a 10-6 lead.
