SPORTS FLASH: Marion slips past SE Saline

The Marion defense blocked a Southeast of Saline extra point to preserve a 7-6 win over the Trojans Friday night in a defensive battle at SES.

Marion scored its only touchdown when Jared Smith hit Robert Verbic with a 60-yard touchdown pass . The extra point made the score 7-0.

The most devastating opponent of the evening may have been Mother Nature. A tornado hit Assaria in the late afternoon. Fortunately, no one was serious injured. The game at nearby SES was delayed an hour, though, as workers tried to restore electrical power to the rural campus.
