  • Red Devils end season with roust...

    Take nothing away from the good season the Red Devils finished Friday night at The Bolles School in Jacksonville. They had a very good season.

    Take away the three losses to private schools and they were 7-1 against public schools.

    The Red Devils finished with a 7-4 season record, also winning the tie breaker games to finish as district runner up to private school, Trinity Catholic.

  • Red Devils finish with win

    “This has got to be the most awful football I have ever seen,” said Red Devil Coach Derek Chipoletti from the sideline, as his Red Devils failed to score for the third time inside the 5-yard line on senior night.

    But his team rode a hot hand from senior quarterback Dalton Edwards to take a 25-14 win over Union County who was right on target with some great passes.

    Edwards connected with Deonte Welch for a 53-yard touchdown early in the first quarter that made it look like things were going to be easy for the Red Devils.

  • Red Devils are district runner up

    “Bolles here we come!” said a jubilant Red Devil coach Derek Chipoletti following a nail-biting, double overtime victory over the Mount Dora Hurricanes in the tie breaker quarter for the district runner-up spot.

    After Mount Dora played Newberry to a 0-0 tie in their quarter of play, the two teams went to overtime.

    The Panthers scored first, but were unable to convert the two-point try following a penalty on the Hurricanes that put the ball on the one and a-half yard line.

  • 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.
