Bronson dominated the running game, outrushing visiting Oak Hall 311 to negative-57, on its way to a 38-12 opening-game victory.
Oak Hall junior quarterback Will Indianos (27-for-45 for 310 yards and two touchdowns) and his two favorite targets, seniors Skyler Neale (eight receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown) and Luke DiPerna (11 catches for 113 yards), had big nights. However, the visiting Eagles lost four turnovers, including three fumbles, to Bronson's two.
Bronson has next week off before travelling to Branford, while Oak Hall opens its home schedule against Bell.
DIXIE COUNTY 14, CHIEFLAND 0: Dixie County scored its second touchdown after Chiefland fumbled on its own seven yard line. Soon after, the visiting Bears' Rodney Scott ran it in from four yards out to give the game its final margin.
Both teams combined for 36 penalties to give away 345 yards, and each club lost five fumbles. And with both squads not throwing the ball very well, Dixie County and Chiefland relied on their running game to carry them through.
The biggest threat for either team was Scott, whose 21 carries delivered 150 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
