Video: Pella defeats Marshalltown, 38-13

Pella — On a scorching August Friday night, the Pella High School Little Dutch lit up their home field and took the opening game of their 2013 campaign with a score of 38-13. 

The Dutch kicked off to Marshalltown to open the game. The Bobcats' first drive resembled most of their possessions of the game, a quick three-and-out. 

On Pella's first drive, Junior Trevor Argo connected with Bryce Bortscheller for a 75-yard touchdown. Seth Johnson added the extra point to give the Dutch an an early 7-0 lead. 

The defense forced the Bobcat "O" back to the sideline. It was on this possession that the Dutch saw its first of many struggles with penalties the team would have throughout the game. The drive was stalled and briefly put the ball back into the Bobcats' hands. 

That was until Junior linebacker Quinton Murphy would pick up a pick six that put the Dutch up 14-0 with 3:47 left in the first quarter. The Dutch held onto this score through the end of the first. 

A Dutch touchdown was recalled early in the second, due to an illegal procedure penalty. Pella remained undeterred and quickly reclaimed the score with a 12-yard dash by Senior Lukas Steenhoek. The Dutch's lead was 21-0 with 10:45 left in the second and went into halftime with that lead. 

Sophomore Will Warner gave the Dutch prime field position to begin the third with a 26-yard kickoff return. Nathan Henry, another Dutch sophomore, helped take Pella down the field with two rushes for over 10 yards. He finished the game with 55 yards over 10 attempts and had the second-most rushing yards for the Dutch. 

Argo finished the drive for the Dutch with a one-yard quarterback sneak to put Pella up 28-0 with 10:02 left in the third. 

The Bobcat offense struggled again. The team attempted a fake punt, but the Dutch special teams was able to put a stop to it. Pella's offense once again started with good field position, and finished this drive with a 38-yard field goal by Johnson to put them up 31-0 with 6:49 left in the quarter.
