A strong first half by Richfield put the Spartans in a hole they could not climb out of at a non-region matchup against the 3A team on Tuesday.
Richfield connected with the net four times in the first while keeping the Spartans scoreless. Emery stepped up defensively in the second, allowing only one more goal in the game.
Emery will take on North Sevier at home on Thursday. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
