  • Eagles' homecoming spoiled

    So much for an easy homecoming game.

    Jefferson County walked all over Bronson last Friday in a 54-0 blowout, spoiling the Eagles’ homecoming and dropping their record to 0-5 this season.

    From the start, it was all Tigers, all the time.

    Jefferson County quarterback Lenorris Footman tossed a 45-yard pass to David Crumaty to give the Tigers a quick 6-0 lead. The 2-point attempt failed.

    The Tigers added to their lead on their next posession with a 54-yard run by for another score.

  • Lady Red Devils slip by Ft. White

    Early in the season, the Lady Red Devils volleyball team dropped a thriller at Ft. White that went five games to get a winner.

    Tuesday night at the Red Devil gym, the Red Devils returned the favor in four games, as they downed the Lady Indians 27-25, 25-22, 25-17, and came from behind to take the match 25-19 in game four.

    The Red Devils took a quick two-game lead but had trouble getting their serves in the thirty foot square in game three, sending them into the net or past the end line out of bounds.

  • Red Devils slam Umatilla

    With over four minutes remaining in the first quarter, the Williston Red Devils had shown their might as they took a quick 27-0 lead over Umatilla Bulldogs.

    The Red Devils then inserted their second and third string players along with freshman quarterback Austin Chipoletti.

    The Red Devil non starters played the entire second quarter and Chipoletti completed three straight passes on the last drive of the first half, hitting Kalen Penny for a touchdown. Chipoletti connected with Larry Debose for a two point conversion as the Red Devils held a 35-0 half time lead.

  • Levy Cup stays in Williston...

    From the start Williston was in control, while the Indians could only see red.

    Williston easily retained the Levy Cup for the second year in a row last Friday with a 48-0 blowout of county rival Chiefland.

    The Red Devils (3-0) pounced early with a 23-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dalton Edwards to running back Deonte Welch on their opening possession. The Indians followed with a 3-and-out that was stamped with quarterback Eugene Carter getting sacked on 3rd and 9.

  • Father Lopez edges out Eagles in...

    Daytona Beach Father Lopez needed to hold off a fourth-quarter Bronson rally to beat Bronson 27-22 at Alumni Field last Friday night.

    Bronson, which struggled against the Lopez defense, stayed in the game with big plays. Its first two touchdowns came on a 43-yard interception return and an 85-yard kickoff return.

    After the Green Wave’s Taylor Crimmins scored his second touchdown — a 33-yard run around the left end — Lopez (1-2) was up 27-14 with 4:49 remaining in the game.

  • Red Devils de-claw Dixie&...

    It was two weeks ago that Williston Coach Derek Chipoletti said, “Our defense will have to keep us in games early in the season while our offense improves.”

    Friday night, it was the Red Devil defense that stuffed the Dixie County Bears’ runningback Stephen Godbolt for no gain in overtime as he tried to run in for the two-point conversion for the win in overtime. The Red Devils claimed the victory 14-13.

    The Bears scored in the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead. Deonte Welch tied the game in the second quarter on a tremendous run.

  • Bronson routed by Bishop Snyder...

    “I’m proud of them, not mad at them,” Bronson Eagles Head Coach Al Cooksey said, following Friday’s one-sided home loss, 52-14, at the hands of Bishop Snyder.

    “We didn’t give up at all,” Cooksey said.

    “They are a large 2B team that have just been allowed into our conference this year,” Cooksey said. “We had to play them; we didn’t choose to.”

  • JV Red Devils drop season opener

    On Thursday Sept. 10, the Williston Red Devil JV team gave up a late fourth quarter touchdown and lost to the Union County Tigers JV 14-6.

    The Red Devils took the early lead in the first quarter when quarterback David Heinkel found Dequaious White for a 30-yard pass and run to the end zone for the touchdown with 2:22 showing on the first quarter clock. The extra point try for two failed, and the Red Devils held a 6-0 lead.

    The Red Devil defense held the Tigers on a fourth and eight as the first quarter ended.

  • Lady Red Devils get ‘...

    The Lady Red Devils fell to 1-2 in district play as they lost a hard fought match to the Santa Fe Lady Raiders on Tuesday Sept. 15.

    "We lost our focus in the last two games," said Lady Red Devil coach Kim Nivala. "We have been trying different things in our practices and we are working on building team concepts. I am pleased with the way we played tonight during certain stretches of the games," Nivala said.

    "We have stretches in games that we play very well and can play with any team we face," Nivala said.
