Indians ahead of the game

By: Jordan Hansen [Opinion Editor]

Friends. Schoolmates. Brothers. These all describe any Indian football team from any year. Their dedication, strength, and athleticism set them apart from the other schools.

So far this year the Indians have ran out to a 2-0 start, with a 42-3 stomping of Mt. Vernon and a convincing win at Benton Community, 21-7. In the first two games, the Indians have showcased their excellent defense and running game. Their running game, led by Colton Storla and Dusty Albaugh, combined for 292 yards and four touchdowns in the Mt. Vernon game.

The Indians can play defense too.  Late in the fourth quarter of the Benton game, with Benton driving the ball down the field, Dusty Albaugh picked off a pass and returned it, allowing Marion to run down the remaining time on the clock. Special teams are looking good for them too. In the second quarter of the Benton game Austin Hardman picked up a fumble by the Bobcats after the Indians punted. The ensuing drive led to a touchdown, putting them up 13-0. Curran Lipsett’s kicking game has also been very solid over the first two games of the season.

Marion’s next game is versus the Western Dubuque Bobcats, who beat Beckman, 28-0 but then lost there next game to West Delaware 29-37. The Marion vs. Western Dubuque game will be played at Thomas Park Field on Friday, September 10th at 7:30. The sophomore’s, who are also 2-0, have looked very good so far this season, winning there games 20-6 and 6-0, respectively. There game starts at 5:15.
