PRIEST RIVER — The Spartans improved to 2-1 on the season after a 29-0 demolition of the Medical Lake Cardinals here Sept. 9. The Spartans took a 14-0 first quarter lead and never looked back while racking up 248 yards of total offense while limiting Medical Lake to 62 yards of total offense.

Head coach Brad Martin said it was a good overall game by the team. “Kids overcame obstacles this week, came to play, played hard and played well.”

Quarterback Riley DeMent shone while passing for 41 yards and two touchdowns, plus 31 yards and a touchdown on the ground. On defense, the two-way starter picked off a Cardinals pass and recorded one tackle for loss. Dausen O’Brien led the defense all around with one interception, one fumble recovery, one sack, one tackle for loss, and three tackles. Arron Reyes led the defense in total tackles with six tackles. Robbie Anselmo rushed for 87 yards on 18 attempts, including one touchdown. Keegan Hegel added 41 yards on seven attempts. Brandon McCracken and Kody Salesky each scored a receiving touchdown courtesy of DeMent. The Spartans converted twice on two-point attempts, and on one of two point after kick attempts.

Though Martin and the fans and players were pleased with the Spartans’ performance Sept. 9, he said they’d have to get even better for their upcoming visit to the defending 2A state champion St. Maries Lumberjacks at 7 p.m. Sept. 15.

“Lots of areas to improve on and we’ll get back to work this week to build strengths and get better in areas we need to address. We’ve got a great challenge and opportunity traveling to St. Maries and we expect to be prepared, play well and compete.”
