The Marathon Dolphins scored on their opening possession last Friday night. From there, they let their shutdown defense do the rest.
Marathon intercepted Palm Glades quarterback Michael Daniel a total of four times to improve to 2-5 on the season with a 7-0 win. Although fumbles limited the Dolphins’ opportunities to finish drives, their defense refused to let the Eagles into the end zone. “We weren’t going to fail in front of our fans at our homecoming game. We weren’t going to let them down,” said junior running back Malachi Hawkins.
True to form, freshman defensive back Carlos Lezcano intercepted Daniel in the end zone as time expired to ice the game for Marathon.
