It was a game of inches.
When the North Marion Huskies lined up facing fourth-and-inches from Bees’ 13-yard line, J.J. Rogers answered the call. After a four-yard rumble, the Huskies had a new set of downs and pounded the ball into the end zone a few plays later for the go-ahead score.
East Fairmont then marched down to the Huskies’ 23-yard marker, but it was Drew Harker who picked off Jake Delaney to lock it up for the Huskies by a final of 25-22.
It was Austin Stanley who really set the tone for North in the first half. Stanley rushed twice for over 60 yards en route to 159 yards in the first half and a score. It would be Stanley who would score the final touchdown.
The Huskies’ ground game came through, as they out-rushed the Bees 209-95 in the first half.
The Bees went to a passing attack all game that featured Ronnie Mills and Scotty Shroyer. Delaney completed 18-of-29 passes for 201 yards and a score, but it was his late interception that sealed the deal.
The Huskies picked up their first win and moved to 1-5 on homecoming night, while the Bees fall to 1-4.
East Fairmont plays at home next week against Robert C. Byrd and North Marion will welcome in Lewis County.
