Phil’s Blog: Game 12 – Middletown

District Win #31
The Spartans opened the 2018 playoff season with a convincing 27-9 win over Littlestown. This was the school’s thirty first district victory in forty-eight games. The defense intercepted the Thunderbolts five times, which was one shy of a school record, and recovered a fumble for a total of six turnovers. This type of advantageous defensive play will be key for the team to continue through the playoffs. Offensively, the Spartans one-two rushing punch of Tim Kowalski and Max Hurleman combined for 221 yards. Not to be overlooked were two field goals by sophomore Aidan Cirulli in windy conditions.

District Semifinals – Middletown
So, how to beat the #2 ranked team in the state?
The three points above are a good start. An advantageous defense, strong running game, and solid special teams in difficult weather conditions are essential. Quarterback Ben Terefenko needs to continue his season long accurate passing performance for the Spartans to put enough points on the board to stay with the explosive Blue Raiders.

Do the Spartans have a chance? Of course they do.

I do not believe this Middletown team is as talented as the last two who handled the Spartans. The Blue Raiders were beaten by Bishop McDevitt 40-14 early this season and gave up forty points to a 4-6 2A Steelton squad.

We’ll see, right?
