The Spartans opened 2017 with the same approach as the 2016 season. RUN. THE. BALL.
With a hard-hitting defense to protect any lead, the Spartans committed to the run. Volar and Musallam scoring 2 rushing TD’s each against an undermanned Oilers squad.
Special teams contributed with a 65-yard punt return, ensuring the Spartans we’re in control throughout the match.
The Oilers held strong in the second half, conceding only 2 TD’s while scoring their first TD of the season, via a Tedmanson scramble.
Will the Spartans formula continue to work against high scoring passing offensive sides, we’ll find out next week as they meet South City.
SPARTANS: Volar 2 rushing, Musallam 2 rushing, Ridington punt return for TD
OILERS: Tedmanson 1 rushing.
