Marion downed by SE of Saline, 21-6

Marion head football coach Grant Thierolf probably would like to erase the first half of Friday’s game against the Southeast of Saline Trojans, mainly because his team would have won.

The Warriors were scored on three times in the first half in their matchup with the Trojans. Marion managed to grab six points in the third quarter, after an electrifying punt return by Mitch Enos. But the 15-point deficit proved too be too tough a climb for the Warriors, who fell 21-6 to the 2-0 Trojans.

Marion lost Bronson Shipman for the season after the senior broke his arm in two places on the first defensive play from scrimmage. The Warriors were also without speedster Jarvis Whiteman, who participated in less than a dozen offensive plays due to illness.

Defensive ace Jason Matz was lost for most of the second half with a hamstring pull. Both Matz and Whiteman are expected to play on Friday, when the Warriors meet up with arch-rival Sacred Heart in Salina.
