By WSIL Sports

MARION -- Senior quarterback Brant Hill had a big night running and throwing to lead Marion to a 38-22 win over Althoff.

The Wildcats led 18-16 at the half, but on the opening possession of the third, Hill broke loose for a 48 yard run. A few plays later he tossed a 24 yard touchdown pass to John Dalton.

Hill later added a touchdown run after the Wildcats' defense picked off Crusaders' quarterback Eric Mertens twice in the third quarter.

Marion improves to 4-2, 2-1 in the South 7.
The Wildcats will host Centralia next week.
