Gotta make it a quick one tonight, kids. It’s Friday night, I have WEEU streaming, thirty or so tenth graders in my backyard, a sensory-overloaded dog, and I need a beer.
The Spartans continued to roll, this time with a 45-6 win at Hamburg. Pretty typical Spartan effort for this season: 300 yards on the ground, good special teams, and a stifling defense. The only real concern I see with this team is their affection for penalties. Seven against the Hawks, six previously in Fleetwood, twelve at home against West York, six with North Schuylkill, and nine in the Twin Valley season opener. Only the Pottsville (four) and Blue Mountain (two) games were more reasonable. For a team executing so well in, really, every aspect of the game, the penalty thing is baffling. I’m sure this will tighten up as the regular season draws to a close.
