The Spartans (4-1-1 ECC, 11-2-2) celebrated senior day with a solid 6-1 victory over Hamilton.
The game started out with Nick Cliffel getting in the game for a few seconds before being subbed out. A season ending injury put Nick on the sidelines all year but it was pretty special for him to get on the field one last time. Hamilton had some quickness and put some early pressure on the Spartans but Turpin struck first with a goal by Keegan King on a nice through ball pass from Ethan Vargo with 27 minutes to play in the half. The Spartans wasted little time getting on the scoreboard again as Caleb King scored on the long throw-in from Keegan King.
Will Cissell then scored on one the craziest plays of the year. Chris Workman passed the ball in front of him but the keeper came out and kicked the ball hard into Cissell’s face deflecting it 20 yards into the goal to make the score 3-0 with ten minutes to play in the half. Turpin took complete control of the game before the half as Trey Shetler knocked in a bouncing ball in the box after a corner kick and Cissell scored again on a nice long pass from Jacob Benintendi to make it 5-0.
In the 2nd half, Turpin was able to freely sub and get everyone in to enjoy senior night. Will Cissell closed out the scoring with his hat trick on a header off of a corner kick from Trey Shetler.
