PENDLETON — Nerve-wracking was Jim Leisure’s sensation when he had the reins of Mt. Vernon’s football team for Friday night’s rivalry match with Pendleton Heights.

“I kind of felt like Shooter in the movie Hoosiers,” said Leisure, filling in for head coach Doug Armstrong. “I want to grab Gene Hackman by the throat and say ‘Don’t do this to me again.’”

The Marauders quickly and swiftly calmed Leisure, and caused panic amongst the Arabians on PH’s homecoming.

MV slammed the Arabians to the tune of 513 yards — while not throwing a single pass — and for the third week in a row eclipsed the half-century mark on the scoreboard, triumphing 58-26 and remaining atop the Hoosier Heritage Conference, tied with Delta at 3-0 in the league.

Winners of four straight, the Marauders have outscored their opponents 207-76 during the streak, while running for an eye-popping 1,672 yards.
