Senior tight end Jacob Wilson (#34) catches a pass in the Marshals loss versus the McCracken County Mustangs.

The atmosphere was electric and the stands were buzzing in response to the long-awaited game among district-rivals, McCracken and Marshall County. In their toughest game of the season so far, the Marshals hosted the Mustangs, looking to break their nine-year losing streak since the school was established in 2013.

It was a slow start for the Marshals, struggling to move the ball down the field and punting it to McCracken, which led to good field position and an early 31-yard touchdown run from the Mustangs. On their next drive, McCracken caught a screen pass for the score, which increased the Mustangs lead to 14-0 at the end of the first quarter.
