Through two weeks of the regular season, the good times just keep on coming for the Marietta Indians and first year coach Sam Powers.

Friday night Marietta marked its home debut at McClain Stadium with a 27-0 shutout of Elmore City-Pernell, giving the Indians a 2-0 start to the season for the second straight year.

Zack Spanglo got Marietta on the board in the first quarter with a one-yard touchdown run, before Nolan Birks converted the two-point conversion. 

Birds would help set up the Indians next touchdown as he intercepted a pass on defense, which eventually led to Spanglo’s second score of the night, this time from 16-yards out near the end of the first quarter. The successful extra point by Javier Serrano left Marietta with a 15-0 lead.

Just over two minutes into the second quarter, Birks struck with his arm as he found Kile Ing for a 54-yard touchdown pass, making it 21-0 after the missed extra point.

Spanglo would also show his skills on defense before halftime, earning an interception to help keep the Badgers off the board.

Despite fumble recoveries by Ing and Wyatt Miller in the third quarter, the Indians were held off the board.

However, Caleb McGehee would get his own fumble recovery in the fourth quarter, giving the Indians prime field position at the Badgers 15-yard line.

Spanglo accepted the generous field position, finishing off the short drive with another touchdown, this time from six yards out to finish off the scoring. 

Birks finished the game 5-of-13 passing for 97 yards with one touchdown, while carrying the ball three times for 30 yards.

Spanglo had his second game with more than 100 yards as he totaled 155 yards on 16 carries with three touchdowns, while tallying two catches for 34 yards. 

Carlos Whibbey finished with one carry for 18 yards. 

Marietta (2-0) is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Friday night against Ringling with the game taking place at Rick Gandy Memorial Stadium in Ringling.
