The Sumner fans who moped about the Seahawks’ first loss of the season can keep their spirits up as the undefeated Spartans football team rolled to another victory Friday.

The Spartans traveled to Franklin Pierce and took down the Cardinals 28-6.

“We jumped out to a 28 point lead behind some big plays on offense and a bone jarring defense,” coach Keith Ross said. “We held a good offense to 94 yards and six points.”

Sumner scored 14 in the first and second quarters. Franklin Pierce scored six in the third and extra point missed.

Brandon Tulaepa scored on a 12-yard run for the first touchdown. Josh Riley scored second on a 55-yard interception return.

DeJon Lynch scored next from six-yards out and Austin Gregg scored on a 47-yard pass play from Chase Fergusen.

“Austin Striplin had nine tackles, Troy Salisbury had eight tackles,” Ross said. “We struggled to find our offensive rhythm and have a lot of work to do this week. We are very excited to play Orting. They present a tough offense and will be ready for us.  Our kickoff coverage was very good. Josh Riley is the Jeremy Jackson from last year, when given the opportunity, ‘He just makes plays.'”
