  • Let the games begin

    Red Devil football fans are just a few days away from seeing their team take the field against the Bradford Tornadoes.

    On Aug. 28, the Red Devils, under the direction of new Head Coach Derek Chippoletti and his staff, will travel to take on a Bradford team that Chippoletti calls “A real good match up team for his Red Devils.”

    “Bradford’s head coach, Steve Hoard, is a defensive minded coach and this game will certainly test our offense right out of the gate,” Chipoletti said.

  • Red Devil defense dominates at...

     

    Standing in water on the sidelines over their shoe tops, the playing conditions on the field were not much better.

    However, the Williston junior varsity team played the first half of the Fall Classic and took advantage of a hard hitting defense in both quarters. They forced three fumbles and with just over two minutes to play in the second quarter Austin Chipoletti hit Tre Wilson with a long pass to the Bradford six yard line. Damon Strange took the ball into the end zone on the next play, as the Red Devil JV beat the Bradford JV 6-0 in a half of football.

  • Williston defense dominates Fall...

    The Williston Red Devils traveled to Bradford for their long awaited first action of the season. The field that awaited both teams was water soaked and the sidelines left water over everyone’s shoe tops. Six players were not suited up for action for various reasons on the Red Devil varsity squad, and it was the defense that took control for both the junior varsity and the varsity halves of football.

    Sophomore halfback Eric Oliver ran for 239 yards on nine carries and scored three touchdowns to lead the Bronson Eagles to a runaway 31-7 victory over Oak Hall in a preseason game at Bronson Friday night.

    Despite the large margin of victory, the game was close for most of the contest with Bronson leading only by a score of 12-7 after three quarters.

  • Ready or not, it’s...

    Red Devil fans, the wait is finally over. Friday night Aug. 28, the Red Devils will travel to Bradford to play their long awaited Fall Classic game.

    The coaching staff is anxious to check out their players in game action, and the players likewise can’t wait to hit an opponent other than their own team members.

    The Red Devils will be running a new offense and trying to stop Bradford with a new defensive set.

    With a new head coach and several new assistant coaches, it is time for the fans to see this season’s Red Devils in action.
