Thursday Rewind: Marshall 41, Blair 7

By Keith Lair

PASADENA — The Marshall High School football team’s rallying point sometime this season might be Thursday night’s impressive 98-yard touchdown drive.
Blair’s rallying cry could be that the Vikings, if not hit by three key penalties, nearly stopped that scoring drive.
Marshall completed the touchdown drive on the last play of the first half, Christian Clark scoring on a 1-yard keeper to spark the Eagles to a 41-8 victory over the visiting Vikings at Pasadena High in a nonleague game.
Marhsall coach Jim Arellanes: That is a good thing to sustain a drive like that. We made mistakes on that drive that we can have simple corrections.”
Blair coach Johnny Lopez: “It’s all about practice. We need to tighten down in practice a little more. The numbers did not help, either. Guys were getting tired. But they don’t give up.”
Marshall’s Christian Clark: We drove 98 yards? Coach called a good series of plays and we executed them very well. It was never a single effort. Together as a team, we drove down the field.”
