  •  The Marceline Tigers opened the football season on Friday night with a non-conference battle against Knox County at Edina. The Tigers tackled the heat ahd their opponents en route to a week one blowout win.
    Knox County took the opening kickoff and quickly went three-and-out. The Black Rage defense allowed no positive gains, with tackles for a los coming on the drive from Dylon Ewigman, Cade Ewigman, DJ Gerhart and Duane Avila. The punt was fumbled, with Cory Hilsabeck tackling the punter at the Knox 14 yard line.
    Marceline rotated quarterbacks through their varsity sets, with both Blake Linebaugh and Andrew Edgar getting time under center. Linebaugh scored from the running back position on a 14-yard scamper for the game’s opening score on the Tigers opening play. Dylan Wheeler added the point-after to give Marceline a quick 7-0 lead.
    Knox again went three-and-out on their next drive, with a tackle for a loss coming from Dylon Ewigman, and a pass deflection by Jared Best. Linebaugh returned the punt to his own 44 yard line. The Tigers would go three-and-out on the drive.
    The Eagles gained a pair of first downs on their next posession, but would not score. Tackles for losses on the drive came from:   Cade Ewigman, Jordan Elam, Avila, and Hilsabeck. Best took the ensuing punt to the Eagles 44 yard line.
    Runs from Linebaugh and Best earned the Tigers a first down. Runs from Linebaigh and Avila, as well as a pass from Linebaugh to Dan Corbin would again reset the down marker for Marceline. Edgar would find Best one play later for a 16-yard touchdown pass. Wheeler added the point-after to give Marceline a 14-0 lead.
    Knox would again go three-and-out on their next drive, with Dylon Ewigman stuffing a pass in a way that looked more like a basketball rejection than a football play. Best took the punt out to the Knox 28 yard line.
    After a short run from Best, Linebaugh used the quarterback keeper to score from 21 yards out for another Marceline touchdown. Wheeler added the extra point to give the Tigers a 21-0 lead just over a minute into the second quarter.
    Knox took the Wheeler kickoff, and quickly were stuffed on a run by Dylon Ewigman. A couple of plays later, the Eagles fumbled the ball. Corbin jumped on the pigskin for the recovery at the Tigers 46 yard line.
    Passes from Linebaugh to Dylon Ewigman and Best would take the Black Rage team past midfeld, and inside the red zone for a first down. Avila took it the remaining 10 yards for the next Marceline touchdown. Wheeler booted in the extra point to give the Tigers a 28-0 lead.
    The Eagles went on another long drive, which also proved to be fruitless. Tackles for a loss came from:   Cade Ewigman, Avila, Gerhart, and Edgar. Best and Dalton Fisher broke up passes on the drive as well. A long punt return from Linebaugh was brought back from the three yard line to the Marceline 49 yard line on a holding penalty.
    Page 2 of 2 - Nathan Wright and Isaya Dorrell would combine for one first down for the Tigers, but the drive would stall. The teams would exchange possessions for the remainder of the opening half, with Marceline taking a 28-0 lead into the locker room.
    Linebaugh took the second half kickoff to his own 29 yard line. He would follow this with a 19-yard run for a first down. Runs from Linebaugh and Avila would move the ball to the Knox 46, where Linebaugh would break off the long run for a Marceline touchdown. Wheeler added the point-after to give the Tigers a 35-0 lead and activate the mercy clock.
    The teams both subbed in their bench players for some varsity action from here, and would exchange possessions for the remainder of the third quarter. Stops for a loss for the Black Rage defense came from:   Avila, Michael Anders, Mike Arnold, Corbin and Fisher.
    In the third quarter, the Tigers second-string offense saw gains by Lane White, Alex Cupp, Bryce Jobson, and Isaya Dorrell.
    Another long Knox County drive would stretch time off of the clock in the fourth quarter. On a fourth down play with just under three minutes remaining in the other game, the Eagles scored on a 14-yard run. They added a short pass for the two-point conversion. This cut the Marceline lead to 35-8, and temporarily turned off the mercy clock.
    Linebaugh quickly reactivated the mercy clock with a 76-yard kickoff return. Wheeler added the point-after to give the Tigers a 43-8 lead. The score would remain the same for the final two minutes left in the contest. The Tigers won this game by a final score of 43-8.
    “It was good to open with a win,” said Head Coach Kent O’Laughlin. “We had a lot of kids play in the rotation and avoided any issues with the heat or cramping. The kids did a fine job of showing up ready and coming out to play from the first drive.”
