MARION (KWWL) -- In what could be the last game at Armstrong Field, the Lions hosted the Spartans in a very cold and windy first round playoff game.
On the Lions first play of the game, QB Mark Atwater went 62 yards on the QB keeper & it was 7-0. Special teams were big for Linn-Mar. On 4th & 15, 6'4 Ian Brayer blocked a Spartan punt and he returned the pig skin 58 for the 14-0 lead. Still in the first quarter on 3rd and 4, tailback Jer Garmin went straight up the gut on the Spartan D for a 38 yard TD strike.
The Lions would roll the Spartans 63-14.
