Rust showed on the Spartans offence as they failed to convert third downs time after time. Spartans defense however was still showing a strong shield, protecting their red-zone throughout the game.

Constant pressure on the Wolves offence saw a play broken up by Spartans stingy defense, forcing the Wolves back into their red-zone for a safety.

With the Spartans up 2-0 and minutes left in the game, the Wolves began what would be the longest 2 minute drill of the season. The Wolves QB was able to land several short passes and used his quick feet on various plays to get them within the Spartans territory. With no timeouts left, wolves were left with no other option but to pass into the end-zone. Spartans DB’s were able to break up what could’ve been a touchdown ending the game with the Spartans on top.

A very close game and we expect coach Lambert to get the Spartans back into shape from their worst performance offensively this season. The Spartans go 5-0 and have one game left for the post season against the Porirua Giants.
