The Golden Lions added to their lead when Denny scored on a penalty kick with five minutes left and Malcolm Smith scored from the left side with one minute left.
Cory Horn gave Garrard a 1-0 lead when he scored three minutes into the game off an assist from Denny.
Garrard outshot Marion 14-7 in the first half and 13-8 in the second half.
"We got a great game by our midfield, Will Keeton and Pat Kleusener. They really controlled the play," Garrard coach Jonathan Martin said.
