Martinsville made its first-ever victory at Sleighter Field as a member of the Mid-State Conference historic in two aspects.
First the visiting Artesians spoiled senior night in the Warriors’ last regular-season home game.
Second, Martinsville ended Whiteland’s two-game winning streak and possibly closed the door for the Warriors to win back-to-back Mid-State Conference championships.
The Artesians (2-4, 2-2), who normally run their offense with the arm of quarterback Hayden Northern, went to a ground attack against Whiteland (2-4, 1-2). Martinsville rushed for 335 yards and five touchdowns against the Warriors defense. Artesian running back Hunter Smith led the barrage with 180 yards on his own and three touchdowns.
