The Spartans were on the road in Midtown on a frigid night to face Grady High School, and came out with the win in an exciting finish! With the game tied late in the 4th quarter, Grady scores the go-ahead goal with 1:27 left to go. With 35 seconds remaining, Junior Charlie Turner comes in the clutch with one of his three goals on the night to tie the game back up. Senior Charley Plumly won his 21st faceoff of the night and the Spartans had one final chance. Senior Carlton Colley came through with 1 of his 2 goals on the night to take the Spartans ahead 15-14 with :02 left on the clock to clinch the come from behind victory! Senior Jake Rubin had a big night with 6 goals and 2 assists while Freshman JD Kilbourn had a hat-trick in both goals and assists. In addition to dominating the faceoffs winning 21 of 29 on the night, Plumly also contributed a goal to the effort. Colley and Junior George Christman each had an assist. The defense was strong, dominating the groundball game taking 35 to Grady’s 26. Senior Chandler Jackson forced 4 of the Spartan’s 7 turnovers on the night with Senior Tiwan Jones, Jr. and Junior Dylan Mah leading the D with a lot of passion. Sophomore Jack Makowski adds to his season save total taking the win tonight and contributing 12 saves. The only downside to tonight was that due to the cold temperatures, we lost our batteries in the camera and did not capture the final four, most exciting, minutes of the game! But, as one of the team captains, Jake Rubin put it, “I’d rather have the win than the film.” Well said! A special thanks to our manager, Tania Clark for managing the team tonight and freezing through the filming! Congrats to all on a key road win – GO SPARTANS!!
