MENDOTA – Mendota finally broke down the door to victory last week against Rockford Lutheran. The Trojans were pounding on it hard again against Marengo.
But Mendota couldn’t get that final push, and the Indians managed to slam the door shut late in the fourth quarter to seize a 34-27 victory over the Trojans in a nonconference game on Sept. 29 at the MHS field.
The Trojans, who fell to 1-5 on the season, led by as many as nine points in the second half. But Marengo managed to score three of the final four touchdowns in the game to escape with the win.
