Those Turpin Ladies were jes kickin’ round the schoolyard Tuesday afternoon when the Wyoming Cowboys rode up Turpin Mountain and challenged ‘em to a good old-fashioned shootin’ match. Well that sure rattled the Spartans, so they booted-up, cleared the horses off the range, and showed dem Cowboys how to trap, scoot and shoot like Annie Oakley.

On a crisp Saturday morning, the Seton Saints travelled across town for a match against a tough, largely unbeaten, Turpin Spartans team. In contrast to the recent matches against known local rivals, this contest featured teams unfamiliar with each other’s playing style. However, after the first five minutes, it was clear that their skills were evenly matched at all positions, and this would be another challenging event.
Last Monday the Lady Maroon Spartans took on cross-town rival Anderson at Anderson. This was the second meeting of the year for these two teams. The first was a 1-0 victory for Anderson. This game had the mood set just right, under the lights and many in attendance. Both teams came out looking to best the other. I don’t know if it was beating your friends, possibly all the young men in the stands, or the rowdy excited crowd, but both teams were playing at a neck breaking pace. At first I thought this might be a disadvantage for the Spartans as they only had 2 subs. I quickly realized in a Turpin VS Anderson game that the ADRENALINE level is through the roof. Getting tired is not an option!!!
Another beautiful evening for soccer, another display of exceptional skills by two rival teams, and a familiar tied score line for the Spartans. Hundreds of fans, most of which are friends and neighbors, eagerly gathered in support of this much-anticipated matchup of crosstown competitors Turpin Spartans and the Anderson Redskins. Today’s match was a 72-minute head-to-head, shoulder-to-shoulder, toe-to-toe bout between friends looking to secure local bragging rights for the next year. The action did not disappoint, despite the tied result.
