Chiefland football shuts out Hamilton County
On Tuesday night the Chiefland football team picked up a win on the road as the Indians traveled to Hamilton County (Jasper) and came away with a 10-0 shutout win.
Sophomore Ty Corbin had the game-winning score early in the game. A 34-yard run by senior Brian Norris in the first quarter set up a 6-yard scoring run by Corbin for a 7-0 Indians’ lead after one.
Chiefland had a chance to go up two scores in the second quarter but an Aidan Horne pick-6 was called back on a roughing-the-passer penalty at the end of the half.
Junior Noah Nguyen kicked a 33-yard FG to make it 10-0 in the 3rd quarter, but the opening score held up thanks to a smothering defense, which held Hamilton County to fewer than 200 yards in posting its second shutout of the season.
Meanwhile Chiefland ran for just over 200 yards thanks to Norris, a USF commit, who led the Indians with 79 yards on just 13 carries.
Chiefland, which improved to 2-3 on the year, is off this Friday. They return to action next Friday night at Hilliard.
Friday’s games involving teams from the Tri-County area:
