Defensive power

Clay Center scored first but couldn't do it often as Marysville rolled to a 56-31 homecoming win Friday night in Homer Hansen Stadium. 

The Tigers were productive for 324 total yards offensively, but failed defensively to stop the Bulldogs, who needed only 48 yards to accumulate 395 yards. Marysville's ability to score at will turned a 24-15 halftime lead into a 40-15 no contest.
