The game was played under the most trying of circumstances with the loss of Delphos St. John center Kent Staup earlier in the week. But nonetheless, the Blue Jays and MAC rival Marion Local hooked up in one of the epic football games in the 2011 season to determine who would play next week in Massillon for the Division VI state championship.
Trailing 14-13 with under a minute to play, Marion drove 71 yards to score on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Adam Bertke to Lee Pierron to give the Flyers a 21-14 win and the berth in next week’s championship.
