Spartans Drop Second Straight PDF Print

It definitely isn't turning out the way South Caldwell High football coach Butch Carter had envisioned it. The Spartans (2-2), coming off back-to-back Northwestern 3A/4A Conference championships, and featuring the best running back in the region in senior Zach Pollard, have seen their season completely turned upside down after

Pollard went down with a serious knee injury against West Caldwell in the season opener on August 30.

Following a 50-7 loss at Asheville-Reynolds last week, the Spartans were victimized by Maiden 38-14 in a non-conference game Friday night in Sawmills, N.C. Maiden senior quarterback Jake McRee , who celebrated his 18th birthday in style, threw for 209 yards and four touchdowns. In turn, the Blue Devils were unstoppable in a 31-point first half. McRee came in averaging 270.5 passing yards per game and cleared 1,000 for the season in just four games. Unofficially, he has thrown for 1,022 yards and has 17 TD passes.

Maiden rushed for 132 yards, paced by Ricky Taylor’s 90 yards on 12 carries, but South Caldwell easily outdistanced the Blue Devils’ run game with 231 yards. Mason Sides ran for 87 yards, all of those in the second half. And he scored both of South Caldwell's TDs.
