On Saturday, the Spartans traveled to Sycamore to take on the Aviators. In an early-season match-up between two of the top 10 teams in the city, the Spartans were very excited to prove themselves against a good team.
On Thursday, the Turpin Spartans beat visiting Bishop Fenwick, 1-0, in a game that was moved to Turpin because of poor field conditions at Fenwick.
On Tuesday, the Turpin Spartans took on the Fairfield Indians at home, winning 1-0. This was the first match of the season for the Spartans and they were excited to take their home field for the first time. The game opened up slowly with neither team having any real attempts to score goals. Fairfield controlled possession for most of the game, passing around in the midfield, but the Indians were unable to penetrate the Spartans’ defense and at the end of the first half the score was tied at 0-0.
Congrats goes out to Trevor Thompson and Ryan Asbury as they both look to continue their soccer careers at the college level. Trevor will be playing for Bellarmine University and Ryan will be playing for Baldwin Wallace.
