Marysville's defense gang tackles Holton's Konnor Tannahill. 

Marysville only had to win to be the district champion Friday against visiting Holton, but the Wildcats dictated the game. 

Marysville lost 30-8. Coupled with Sabetha's 28-15 loss to Wamego, next Friday's games gained a lot of importance. Marysville has a 7 p.m. kickoff at Hiawatha.
