Freshmen Football Falls to Milford

Turpin’s freshmen football team couldn’t withstand an offensive explosion from Milford, dropping a conference game to the Eagles 44-14 on a chilly saturday afternoon at Spartan Stadium.

Milford’s offense struck early, finding the end zone just 43 seconds into the game on two quick-strike plays to take a 6-0 lead. After holding the Spartans on their first offensive possession, the Eagles then marched 85 yards for another score, building its lead to 14-0.

With 3:30 left in the first half, Turpin then got on the board. After converting on a key third down pass to running back Michael Hooper, quarterback Nick Haddad then hit slot receiver Matt Millikin on a short screen pass for the touchdown. Drew Dierig’s point-after kick was good, and the young Spartans had cut the Eagle’s lead in half, 14-7.

But, on the ensuing kickoff, Milford returned the kick 79 yards for a touchdown, increasing its lead to 22-7 after a successful two-point conversion.

The third quarter was all Milford, as the Eagles held the Spartans scoreless and scored twice, padding it’s lead to 36-7 after three quarters of play.

In the fourth, the two teams traded touchdowns, with Haddad connecting with wide out Curtis Johnson on a 12-yard touchdown pass. Milford followed that with a score of its own, closing out the game with a final score of 44-14. Turpin falls to 3-3 on the season, while Milford improves to 1-5-1.
