Spartans Make a Statement *Photo Gallery*


It was homecoming week at Emery High and the annual game did not disappoint. On Friday, the Spartans went into the match against Providence Hall behind the Patriots in the RPI standings, but Emery was undeterred. With some added juice from players returning in the lineup, the Spartans controlled the game from the get go.

Jace Curtis was one of those players, making his first start of the season. He scored the first touchdown for the Spartans and finished the game with 71 yards on 11 carries and a score. His impact added some mojo to the offense and made him one of the Tram Electric Players of the Game.

Defensively, the Spartans were sound. The first unit did not allow the Patriots to score, giving the Spartan offense more opportunities to put up points. Emery took advantage with 14 points in the first quarter and another 20 in the second. Emery went on to score 41 unanswered points and completely dominated the game. Maddex Christman led the defense with 11 tackles and continually disrupted the timing of the Patriot offense. As a result, he was also named one of the Tram Electric Players of the Game.

Colton Jeffs and Treg Miller each played well and logged an interception, while the latter also added a receiving touchdown. Ryker Jensen had another solid outing, completing 67% of his passes, but the ground game is where Emery did most of its damage. Tyler Stilson had two rushing touchdowns while Jensen and Koalton Curtis added one apiece.

The Spartans are getting healthy at the right time and picked up a big 41-7 win on Friday night. Emery (4-4, 2-1) has a road test on Friday, where it will play American Leadership Academy (1-7, 0-3).
