Tensions were high in Sparta last night as the Spartans took on the South Hall Knights!
The 7th Grade Spartans won in a nail-biter against the Knights with a score of 25-24. The Spartans trailed for most of the game, but the defense stepped up and only allowed 4 points in the 3rd and 4th quarter. And the shots finally started to fall for the Spartans as they scored 10 points in the 4th quarter. Ian Pardue led the Spartans in scoring with 11 points. Ethan Clifford had 8.
The 8th Grade Spartans got in rythym early as they defeated the Knight with a score of 47-26. The Spartans went into halftime with an early and dominant lead of 26-8. The Spartans made sure to take advantage of their trips to the free throw line, as they shot 5 for 8 from the stripe. Obadiah Obasuyi let the Spartans in scoring with 12 points. Andrew Malin and Owen Jenkins each had 8 points.
The Spartans now prepare to battle World Language Academy on Thursday (November 15th) in an road matchup, and the Spartans hope to continue their winning ways. We hope to see all of Sparta there to support our boys! Go Spartans!
