Three fumbles, two of them lost on kickoff returns, almost cost Marysville a win Friday night in district play at Wamego. 

The Bulldogs battled back to knot the game at 14-all before halftime, fell behind 17-14 after Joaquim Sucena's 32-yard field goal, and pulled ahead for the 20-17 final on an Atreyau Hornbeak 30-yard run with 4:56 to go.
