Looking ahead to this week’s high school football action, there are a pair of games on Thursday night.
Chiefland will travel to Cross City to take on Dixie County in the annual Battle of the Suwannee. The Bears won a wild 44-42 game against the Indians last year.
Chiefland lost a tough one last Friday 21-14 against Taylor County to open its season, while Dixie County is 1-1 after thumping Williston 40-18 last week.
Also on Thursday at Citizen’s Field in Gainesville, the Gainesville Hurricanes will be at home against Ocala Trinity Catholic.
The visiting Celtics have two Auburn commits and a University of Florida commit on the offensive line, plus a returning 2,000 yard running back. Gainesville is currently 1-1 after losing 28-0 to Sanford Seminole last week. Ocala Trinity Catholic is 1-0 after opening its season with a 48-31 victory over South Sumter.
Kickoff for both games is 7:30.
And be sure to catch the Eastside vs. Buchholz Game of the Week on I am Country 106.9 FM this Friday night starting at 7pm.
