Marshall eliminates Hutchinson in a classic 05 Nov 16

Marshall 17 Hutchinson 14

For a second straight year, Hutchinson came within a whisker of upsetting the #1 seeded Marshall Tigers in the Section 2AAAA Championship Game.  This year’s game was built on defense though, as two of the top offensive teams in the state were unable to score a Touchdown until the second half.  Marshall took a 3-0 lead on a late first half field goal.  In the second half, Hutchinson would get Touchdowns from Maguire Petersen and Christian Kurth to take a 14-10 lead.  Marshall would score the eventual Game Winning TD with 1:03 on the clock getting a 2 yd TD run from Jefferson Lee.  Hutchinson finishes the season 9-1.
