It’s no secret that East football has struggled with turnovers and penalties during the 2018 season.  Nevertheless, East won the turnover battle Thursday night, forcing six Navigator turnovers that propelled the Spartans to a 17-0 victory at Seacrest Field.  “I talked about it before we came down,” said East head coach John Gingery. “I said ‘I want three turnovers.’ Well, we got six and that was evident that’s what kept them out of the end zone.”

The Spartan defense dominated once again.  “Well we thought more power, more counter, you know.  And then they (North Star) come out and they ran option which was good by them, and they had some success doing it,” said Gingery.  But East didn’t appear to have many problems adjusting to the option offense of North Star, shutting out an opponent for the first time in two years.  The Spartans will play against Omaha Bryan next. “We got a lot of guys dinged up right now and we just need to get healed up and come out and play a good game against Bryan, go into the last two then,” said Gingery.  The 3-3 Spartans will face the 1-5 Bears at Seacrest Field on Friday at 4:30pm.
