Penalties in Pink

The Spartan varsity football team faced off against Fort Zumwalt West in a home game on Oct. 7th. The pink-out themed game ended with a score of 7-28. However, despite their loss, the boys were able to hold strong and keep their spirits intact. Senior Spencer Flemming shares the biggest takeaways from their losses that can be used for improvement.

“I hate losing, but you learn more from your losses than your wins. They didn’t do anything to stop us. We had 100 yards of penalties, and we didn’t score when we needed to. But the score doesn’t represent the fight that we had. The way the guys stepped up and fought till the end.” Flemming said. “Coming off of a loss, you need to be more focused on the goal. And that, to me, is to be the best possible version of myself every Friday. Every guy on that team works insanely hard and has sacrificed so much. We know the mission ahead, and we know we’re not going to quit. We play our game.”

The Spartans train and work harder towards their next game, taking place Oct. 21st at 7pm at FHC. Come support the varsity team on their senior night and rally them to victory.
