We begin in class 6a...snider travleing to take on homestead in the locker room's game of the week... ???the spartans, your defending champions in sectional 3, come in ranked eighth in the state... they beat the panthers badly at spuller stadium earlier this season..???but snider let them know from the opening kick that this would be a much tougher battle... tavarious easley-jones fields it at his own 10, gets a crease, gets outside... just the kicekr to beat... and easley will win that race easily... 90 yards to the house... it'a 7-0 snider just 13 seconds into the game..???later in the first quarter, same score... snider looking for more... tyrese brown with a big gain into spartans' territrory... that leads to a field goal... makes it 10-0 panthers..???but it was pretty much all homestead from there... on the ensuing drive... evan ormsby to nate anderson... anderson's got dudes touchin' the turf out there... first down sparty..???moments late... this time it's ormsby to wide open ethan chambers at the goal line... the indiana state commit gets the spartans on the board..???they roll from there... homestead moves on with a 28-10 win... ???so the spartans move on to play the winner of this game... carroll taveling to take on warsaw..

That score puts dwenger up by 14...???ensuing possession for anderson... trying to put something together, but john michael fabini is having none of it... big tackle for loss for fabini..???saints' defense forces a three and out, and it didn't take the offense long to find the endzone again... this time it's lytle keeping it himself, getting outside and finding the pylon..

???dwenger all over anderson tonight... 42-6 the final... ???to class 4-a we go... couple of rivals meeting up in sectional 19 tonight... defending champ east noble traveling to take on dekalb..

???tied up seven - seven in the third.you see the stop there on fourth down... refs have to bring the chains out to make sure... and it is... dekalb with the big stop to take over on downs....???but they don't do much with it.

Next play fumble on the handoff for a big loss on the play.

Facing third and long they try and go for it with the fake punt... thats not going to work either.

Still seven to seven at the end of the third.???any offensive plays are welcome here and we can see one.nice run by justin marcellus here.
