KEY PLAY: Aaron Lefler caught a 67-yard touchdown pass from Ethan McKenney in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 27. Jarod Lentz’s extra point proved to be the difference in the game.

STAR OF THE GAME: McKenney finished with 256 yards passing and a touchdown.

KEY STATISTIC: Marlette out-gained Bad Axe through the air 256-13.

COACH’S COMMENT: “It was a great high school football game,” Marlette coach Denny Lester said. “I am so proud of our guys. They really held the rope tonight. We never quit and just kept battling. We have to do a better job cashing in the red zone. We had the ball in there four times in the first half and only scored once. We have to execute better. I was very proud of the way that Ethan McKenney played tonight. He is a young quarterback that is improving every week. He made some big throws. I really liked the way we were able to spread the ball around this week. There were a lot of guys that contributed offensively. Aaron Lefler ran a great route for the winning score. He is playing at a very high level. His hard work is paying off.”
