The Mustangs’ offense has sputtered as of late.

Marian’s engine finally began humming on all cylinders Thursday with a 7-0 non-conference win over visiting Walled Lake Western. It was the Mustangs’ highest offensive production of the campaign and now gives them a 13-0 scoring advantage as part of their 4-0-2 start as the No. 1-rankedc team in Division 2.
