The JV Maroon Spartans traveled to Seton for the second time this season. I thought it was because the fields at home were being used. They appeared to be available, and the home field advantage we could have used. At the very least, it may have been too far for the guys in green to travel to. I’ll get to that in a minute.

The modern day Greek Wars just aren’t what they used to be. Turpin finished their Spartan Strong season Tuesday night wielding their arsenal of soccer skills to shutout the Glen Este Trojans 8-0.
The Lady Spartans squared off with a fierce Lakota West Firebirds squad last Saturday morning. Both teams exhibited exceptional skills, high energy and smart strategy, resulting in a low-scoring, 72-minute, midfield grind wherein any offensive breakout run could have resulted in a game-winner.
Last Monday the Lady Maroon Spartans took on a strong Centerville team for the second time. The first had Turpin losing 2-0. I will tell you now; this time they would lose 5-0. I will also tell you this time they played better. I know what you’re thinking, come on article guy how is a 5-0 loss better than a 2-0 loss. Simple is the answer, last time when the kickoff sounded we dropped 10 girls and played defense the entire game. This game would be much different.
