North Jersey represented in Boston

The first official Collegiate Football Club game is now in the books.  The CFC Spartans traveled up to Cambridge, MA to face the Boston Terriers, comprised of student athletes from Boston University, in their first ever game in the history of the program.  The temperature was warm and the sun was shining as kick-off began on this Sunday afternoon at MIT – Steinbrenner Stadium.  The Spartans were eager to play as this was their first chance to actually have contact with another team.  There weren’t any scrimmages or pre-season games that took place this year to shake off the tension or iron out the wrinkles.

The first quarter was a true battle as neither team’s defense would let the other team score.  The 2nd Quarter was the most eventful quarter of the game as both teams went back and forth, scoring 6 total touchdowns, including an Interception that was returned for a Touchdown by Spartans Defensive Tackle, Justin Sessoms.  Going into the half, the score was 26 – 12, which included the program’s first touchdown, which was a completion to Spartans’ Wide Receiver, Jerick Oliver from Spartans’ Quarterback Reginald West.

In the 2nd Half of the game, the Terriers extended the lead by scoring in both the third and fourth quarter of the game, bringing the final score to Terriers 40, Spartans 12.  The CFC was very thankful for the great hospitality of the Terriers Players and Staff and send a special thank you to the Spartans’ fans who traveled 4+ hours to attend the game and show their support.

So, what do the CFC Spartans have planned.  “Getting back to the basics, focusing on the mental aspects of the game; becoming better at our respective positions,” says Kevin Moss, Head Coach.  “If we don’t try to do too much and just focus on our assignments, it will result in better play on the field.”

The CFC Spartans have a bye-week coming up, which gives more time to prepare for their Home Opener against the Clarkson University Golden Knights on Saturday, October 6th.
