The score went to 12-0 when Williams threw a 1-yard pass to Mandell Smith. The Chiefs missed the PAT.
With the score 12-6, Leonte Wright gave the Chiefs more cushion as he rumbled 26 yards for a touchdown. The PAT was no good, but the Chiefs held an 18-6 advantage.
Wright put the game out of reach for Blountstown when he scored the Chiefs' fourth touchdown of the half. This time, he ran it in from 30 yards out. Jeremy Greenwell made the PAT.
Williams completed the scoring with another touchdown pass to Andrews, this one a 28-yarder. Greenwell's PAT was good.
Lambeth said the Chiefs still have some work to do before the season opener next week against Vernon.
