Spartans hold Indians to 63 yards in 42-0 conference victory; Maquoketa up next

SOLON– After a shaky first quarter, Solon kicked it in gear.
At least that’s the way it looked as Marion came to town for a conference game on the gridiron Friday night.
Solon was plagued by penalties in the early going, but soon shook it off and rolled to a 42-0 blanking of the Indians.
The win moves Solon to 6-1 on the year, 4-0 in Class 3A District 6 and headed for a showdown on the road with co-leader Maquoketa this Friday.
The Spartan defense held Marion to 63 total yards for the game, and scoreless for the first time this year.
