The Arlington Bowie Volunteers racked up 25 unanswered points against the Marauders in the first varsity football game of the year. A fourth-quarter touchdown pass by sophomore quarterback Garrett Nussmeier to senior wide receiver Gus Sralla put seven points on the board for the school. However, the late-game touchdown was unable to make up for four quarters of the Volunteers’ physical defensive line.  

Head Coach Kevin Atkinson acknowledged the skill of Arlington Bowie, and recognized them as a strong competitor. However, Atkinson wants the team to keep looking forward.

“They’re really talented,” Atkinson said. “Things haven’t really bounced our way, but I think the way these guys are working, we’re not focused on only making the playoffs. We’re focused on winning in the playoffs.”

The team was without starting senior linebacker/wide receiver Marcel Brooks, who was out with an injury. Likewise, the Volunteers’ use of their free safety as a mock-linesmen stopped the running game, leaving senior running back Justin Dinka with just 15 rushing yards.  

Meanwhile, Nussmeier surprised many fans with his skill as a punter, by kicking the ball on fourth downs, which provided the offense with increased play options.

The Marauders will face McKinney Boyd next week at 7:00 at home.
