Kingston Redskins Roll over Marietta Indians

By Michael Haggerty

Friday night, the Kingston Redskins played host to the Marietta Indians in a District game at Harold “Bulldog” Henry Field. The Indians left Marietta wishing they had declined the Redskins’ hospitality after Kingston posted its first shutout of the season, crushing Marietta 0-48.

The two teams met trending in sharply different directions. Kingston came into the game with only a single loss, and was undefeated in District play, creeping ever closer to re-entry into the Associated Press rankings, losing out to 10th-ranked Heritage Hall by only a single vote. Marietta, after starting the season with two nonconference wins, has since lost four straight, coming off two straight shutouts at the hands of Dickson and Lindsay.

On a cool and damp evening, with water standing on the unfinished track and banishing the cheerleaders to the stands, Kingston made it clear that this night would be more of the same. Marietta went three and out on its first drive, and the Redskins then rolled right down the field and scored on a run up the middle by senior running back, Braden McGehee. A missed extra point left the Redskins up early 0-6.
