Marengo High shuts out Akron, 60-0

AKRON – Marengo High School continued its winning way Friday night, defeating Akron 50-0 to claim its fourth straight win of the season.

“We’re getting better at what we do,” said Panther head coach Dredrick Bell. “We still haven’t opened up all the way on offense, but we’ve been able to establish a physical running game. And we’re playing well on defense, too. I’m proud of the guys and the way they dedicate themselves each week to go out and play hard.”

Jatevin Horn rushed for 202 yards on 12 carries, including a 98-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Horn added 11 total tackles and two sacks in the contest.

Shamerian Lewis scored four rushing touchdowns to help fuel the effort.

Marengo, now 4-1, hosts St. Luke’s Thursday night.
