Warriors drop 24-6 decision to Hesston

The Marion Warriors led the Hesston Swathers 6-3 at halftime, but poor field position and a couple of costly turnovers led to a 24-6 Swather victory Saturday night in Hesston.

Calvin Riggs caught a 23-yard touchdown strike from Clayton Chamberland to give the Warriors a 6-3 lead with 8:00 to play in the first half.

Marion earned 107 yards rushing and 135 yards through the air, but a quick Hesston backfield proved elusive for the Warrior defenders.

Hesston grabbed the lead for good, 10-6, with 10:26 to play in the third quarter on a six play 15-yard drive, set up by a five yard Marion punt.

The Swathers added to their 10-6 lead with 4:42 to play in the game on a two yard run, making the score 17-6.

Hesston iced the game with 1:01 to play when quarterback Randall Dreir broke loose for an 85 yard touchdown.

With the loss, the Warriors concluded a highly successful season with a record of 9-2, including a perfect 5-0 record in the CVL, and the league championship.
