Jr. high Patriots lose to Wave
The Marshall Academy junior high Patriots let a halftime lead slip away Thursday night.
MA took a 12-7 advantage on the last play of the first half but the second half was all North Delta. The Pats fell 27-18.
The Green Wave went in front on a 69-yard pass play with 5:09 to go in the first quarter and kicked the extra point.
Marshall answered at the 5:52 mark of the second quarter. Dakota Dailey threw to Colt Lindsey for a touchdown on a fourth-and-goal from the 12. A try-for-two failed.
The Patriots got the ball back with 4:13 to go in the first half and drove for the go-ahead points. Dailey hooked up with Lindsey for a first down and then found receiver Tucker Fant for another. After a couple of running plays, MA called timeout with :01 on the clock. Dailey threw to Brian Novarese over the middle for the 7-yard touchdown. The two-point attempt was not successful.
North Delta scored twice in the third quarter – the first on a 63-yard run and the next on a 1-yard plunge. The visitors were one of two on extra-point kicks and led 20-12.
The Green Wave padded their lead with 5:19 remaining in the fourth, thanks to a 32-yard run. The kick was good.
The Patriots added a late touchdown. Dailey scored on a 5-yard run, and the try-for-two failed.
The game was dominated by flags. North Delta was penalized 10 times for 80 yards and Marshall eight times for 50.
Top tacklers for MA were Novarese with seven and Dailey with six.
The Pats host Oak Hill Academy this Thursday. Game-time is 7 p.m.
