Here are the final stat totals for the 2016 season. The Spartans finished the year with an 8-3 record.
We would like to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving and we would like to wish our seniors participating in next week's UNICO game good luck.
"It just wasn't in the cards tonight" coach Keating told the players after the game. It seemed like after the first drive everything was going to go the way of the Spartans. But old habits returned, including numerous penalties, and the Spartans saw their season end at the hands of the Comets by a score of 24-7.
Please keep checking back as we will be doing a season recap in the near future along with season totals for stats and of course our Spartan #TBT feature.
In this week's Spartan #TBT, we throw it back to a few weeks ago when the Spartans traveled to Clarks Summit to take on Abington Heights. The Spartans won the game 23-20, thanks to some big special teams plays that are highlighted in the video below.
In the first clip, senior Chris Melovitz comes around the edge to block the attempted kick by Abington Heights. That play was the last play before halftime and made the last play of the game possible. On that play, junior Jake Gurtis booted a 37 yard field goal to give the Spartans the win, which earned them the right to host the District 2 5A Championship game at Spartan Stadium on Friday November 11, 2016 at 7 pm.
