Spartans Shut-out Trenton Again
Fresh out of the Shut-Out over the Black Devils at home last week, the Green, Black, and White were at it again this time on the road. The Spartans were victorious 15-0, blanking the Trenton Capital once again, in their own house at the Capital City Sports Complex.
Frank “The Tank” Fuccello and Orret McBean scored both touchdowns for the Spartans and James Phillips tacked on a Safety by sacking Trenton’s QB in the end-zone, while Greg O’Brien added an extra point.
It was truly a defensive battle as both teams were scoreless through the first 3 quarters. Then the Spartans got on the board with a Safety, making the score Spartans 2, Capital 0.
After the Spartans, were unable to Capitalize on the free-kick, Trenton began to move the ball until the QB threw an Interception caught by Spartans #83 Jahmier Jackson.
On the ensuing possession, the Green, Black, and White entered the End Zone with a Rushing Touchdown by Spartans #21 Frank “The Tank” Fuccello, making the score Spartans 8, Capital 0.
Then with under a minute left to the game, Spartans #9 Orret McBean gets an Interception and returns it for another Spartan Touchdown, followed by a successful Extra Point by #66 Greg O’Brien. Spartans 15, Capital 0. The Spartans would force 5 Turnovers on the day and keep the Capital off of the scoreboard.
The Spartans (7-1) take to the road again next Saturday for a match with the 2-Time League Champion NJ Wolves.
