Jack Re got the ball rolling in the right direction for Turpin when the senior returned the game's opening kickoff at Taylor 90 yards for a touchdown in the rain Friday night. Capitalizing on its early momentum and the running game of junior Luke Bohenek, Turpin ran past the Yellow Jackets 35-13 in the first meeting between the two schools..
The Turpin Spartans ran their record to 2-0 with a 50-7 thrashing of the Western Hills Mustangs Saturday morning in football action that was delayed from Friday because of severe weather.
The Turpin Spartans opened their 2015 aeason with a win over the neighborhood McNicholas Rockets, 13-10, scoring the game-winning touchdown with just 28 seconds remaining in the game.
Last year, the Spartans picked up Rob Stoll's 100th win as head coach and pushed his career record to 101-45. But in the last two years, Turpin is a combined 8-12 and is three years removed from the perfect regular season it put together. Of course, that's all in the past and coaches like to focus on the here and now.
