Warriors whip Chase County, 40-7

After last week’s 42-0 loss to rival Sacred Heart, one thing was certain for the Warriors according to head coach Grant Thierolf-it was time for a change.That change included moving senior defensive ace Jason Matz to the split-back position beside junior Steven Boone.

The move proved to have some major advantages, try 349 advantages. That’s the number of yard that the duo combined for rushing the ball against Chase County in Friday night’s 40-7 win. Matz finished with 149 yards on 17 carries, while Boone finished with 200 yards on 24 carries.

“They’re a pretty good combination,” Thierolf said. “We knew where we were headed with Steven, we just needed to get the ball in Jason’s hands too.”

As a whole, Marion rushed for over 400 yards. They scored 21 points in the first quarter, a touchdown in the second and a touchdown in the third and fourth quarters.

The Marion starting defense held the Bulldogs under 50 yards of total offense, before allowing a long run late in the game that resulted in Chase County’s only touchdown of the game.

The Warriors are 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Cottonwood Valley League standings. Marion hosts Council Grove on Friday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
