Marshall junior high loses to Chiefs
The Marshall Academy junior high football squad showed some spunk in the second half against Magnolia Heights.
The Patriots fell behind 21-0 in the first quarter and 26-0 at the half before losing the season opener 42-8.
MA moved the ball better in the last two quarters and also picked up the intensity on defense.
After falling behind 34-0 midway through the third quarter, the Patriots had some success through the air. Quarterback Dakota Dailey threw a bullet to Colt Lindsey, who made the catch for a 30-yard gain. In the same drive, Dailey and Lindsey hooked up again for a first down to the Chiefs’ 21-yard line.
But then MA faced a fourth and 10 and couldn’t convert. After forcing a Magnolia Heights punt, the Patriots put together a drive and got on the scoreboard at the 5:25 mark of the fourth. Dailey raced 29 yards for the touchdown and then threw to Lindsey for the two-point conversion.
The Chiefs added a late score.
The Marshall junior high team hosts West Memphis Christian this Thursday at 7 p.m. at Patriot Field.
