The Columbus Marion-Franklin Red Devils dominated the play early in the game against Sunbury Big Walnut Friday night, but we all know that’s it takes 48 minutes to win a game whether you dominate it or not.

The Eagles of Big Walnut came from nine points down in the second half to upset top-seeded Marion-Franklin 24-14 in a Division II regional semifinal.

The 11-1 Red Devils took a 12-3 lead on a 62-yard run by quarterback Corry Benson with 2:56 left in the second quarter.

While Big Walnut held its composure throughout the game, Marion-Franklin did not and it cost them 21 penalties for 165 yards. Those penalties kept Big Walnut in the game and allowed them to come back.
