The Spartans traveled cross town to take on the Seton Saints who already earned 4 wins thus far in the season. Turpin got off to a good start, used an effective defensive scheme and dominated inside to earn a hard fought 40-32 victory to improve to 4-2.
Saturday’s home contest against the defending conference champions was clearly the most important game thus far in this young season. A loss would send the Spartans to a three game ECC losing streak while a win would create some momentum going into a stretch of 4 games in a week’s time. The Spartans took command early with their best 1st quarter of the season and used a balanced scoring attack to defeat Kings, 46-36, at Klinger Court.
The 4th game of 2017-18 season saw the first ever tilt between the West Clermont Wolvers (4-0) and the Turpin Spartans (2-2) at Klinger Court. A sizeable crowd accompanied the visitors who were pre-season favorites to take the conference crown, but early on the Spartans were not accommodating hosts as they controlled the tempo and kept the Wolves inside game at bay. However, the Wolves outside shooting broke open a tight contest as the visitors eventually rolled to a 50-33 victory over Turpin.
With 3 games in the first six days of the season, the Turpin Spartans had a tough beginning to their first road game of the year at Loveland. The hosts used a trapping half court man to man defense to jump out to an early lead that could not be overcome by visiting Spartans. Turpin suffered their first loss of the year, 39-27.
