The Spartans gave the homecoming fans something big to celebrate – a 55-8 victory over Washington at Sunset Chev Stadium Friday.

The undefeated Spartans have two games remaining in the season. Sumner travels to Fife for a 7 p.m. game Friday.

The final game of the season is setting up to be a battle of the undefeated teams. Sumner will host White River, the other undefeated team in the South Puget Sound League, 2A.

Friday, Sumner posted 21 points in the first quarter, despite Washington’s physical defense.

“We had a good all around game,” coach Keith Ross said.

Defensively the Spartans again were dominate.

“Jesse Lindahl had 17 tackles,” Ross said. “Austin Striplin played nose guard and had 15 tackles. Jace Johnson had an interception return for 33 yards. We blocked a punt, scored on a fake punt and scored on a fumble recovery. It was a great night and it is always important to get a win on your homecoming game.  We are excited to play Fife this week. They are big and physical and will present a great challenge for us.”
