By Garrett Parlet & Storm Bluntschly
SHELBY -- For a second straight week, Shelby senior running back Owen Fisher went bezerk against an MOAC squad out of Marion, carrying the Whippets to a 49-17 victory in front of the home fans at Skiles Field.
Fisher followed up his record-setting performance in Week 2 by adding 237 yards and 4 touchdowns to his fast growing season totals, helping Shelby build an early lead that continued to swell throughout the night. A 7-0 Whippets advantage quickly became 35-10 by the end of the opening half before Owen added a pair of rushing touchdowns in the third to start a running clock.
Shelby junior QB Marshall Shepherd had an efficient night through the air, completing 14 of 17 pass attempts for 106 yards and a TD to Blaine Bowman, keeping his team spotless with a 3-0 start.
Next up for the Whippets is a trip to Galion (2-1) while the Presidents (0-3) host Madison.
