Attempting to win three straight games for the first time since 2016, the 3-3 Spartans will go up against the 1-5 Bears of Omaha Bryan on Friday.  “Omaha Bryan doesn’t have a great record but we still gotta prepare as we do for every other team, see what they do on offense and prepare our defense to combat that,” said senior wide receiver Connor Riekenberg.  “On offense, we’re gonna run the same plays that we always do and rep that so we can keep getting better at that.”

East has had trouble staying healthy as of late.  “I think a lot of people will be back, they’re getting healthier,” stated Riekenberg.  “The trainers always do a great job getting us back and putting us back on the field in the best shape possible.”  The Spartans have also struggled to play clean games and win the turnover battle, except for last week against North Star when East forced six turnovers and played a much cleaner game penalty-wise than in previous games.  Riekenberg mentioned that it was a goal in practice during the week following the Bellevue East game to force turnovers and play penalty free. That focus was certainly visible against North Star and East hopes to keep the momentum against Omaha Bryan.  The Spartans will play the Bears at Seacrest Field on Friday at 4:30pm.
