Although the second half didn't go exactly according to plan, Marceline had no problem vanquishing Schuyler County in Lancaster on Friday night.
The Tigers won, 41-0, and had a 33-0 lead at the half.
To begin the game, the Tigers forced the Rams into a three-and-out. Sophomore Wyatt Molloy took the ensuing punt to the endzone, and Marceline never looked back.
After forcing another three-and-out, senior Cullen Bruner took the resulting punt down to the Schuyler 10-yard line.
The game did not become a running-clock affair until late, and Marceline head coach Mark Ross felt like he had to keep his starters in until the bitter end -- something that he was ultimately disappointed about.
"In the second half, Schuyler had a lot of sustained drives and it just seemed like we couldn't get them off of the field," Ross said. "They had a ton of guys at the point of attack in their Power-I, everytime that had a fourth and whatever, it seems like they picked it up.
"That being said, we got to test some various wrinkles that our huge group of sophomores needs to learn. I didn't think that we'd be able to just totally push them over in the second half, because I like what they do, but I thought our defense might be able to get off the field."
