Spartans thrash Roughriders, 57-14, to remain unbeaten
September 25, 2012
Skyline High School opened its league campaign on the road as it bludgeoned the Roosevelt Roughriders, 57-14, in KingCo 4A gridiron action at Memorial Stadium Sept. 21, to move its overall record to 4-0.
Spartans quarterback Max Browne spearheaded the lopsided Skyline conquest as he threw for well over 300 yards and a trio of touchdown strikes to seal the Roughriders’ fate.
The outcome of the contest was never in doubt as Skyline’s offensive machine sprinted out to a 43-7 halftime advantage, bolstered not only via the stalwart passing arm of Browne but also a reliable ground attack.
Cedric Cooper and Jack Valencia culminated long drives in the evening as they scampered and plunged in from 13 yards and 1 yard out, respectively, for a pair of touchdowns on the ground.
Skyline maintained its 40-point margin of victory in this one-sided tilt with Roosevelt, as in its previous three outings, the last of which was a 71-15 pummeling of Coeur d’Alene High School in Idaho Sept. 15. Most of the games have been decided by intermission.
