Despite Marysville's 12-0 lead in the first quarter and a Bulldog lead from start to finish, Friday's district game was a nailbiter at times all the way down to the 30-24 final. 

Marysville never lost the lead, but Concordia never folded. The Panthers cut MHS' lead to 12-10 early in the second quarter. The Dogs went into halftime up 18-10 after a 5-yard touchdown pass from Ayden Price to Peyton Smith.
