MCS head coach Bob Taylor made no excuses for the Trojans, who had seven fumbles in the contest. MCS had four first quarter fumbles, ending its hopes of winning.

“Turnovers has been the theme of our season,” Taylor said. “We’ve had trouble holding onto the football. We had four fumbles in the first quarter and it went from there. Sparta capitalized on our fumbles.”

MCS trailed 20-0 at halftime and could never generate anything offensively.

Sparta is coached by Arlton Hudson, who was the head coach at Southside High School from 1989 to 1992. He’s coached 20 years of high school football.

“Coach Arlton Hudson is doing a great job in turing their program around,” Taylor said. “hey are physical at the point of attack. Sparta is a much improved team from a year ago.”

MCS will host Southern Academy next Friday at Wadsen Stadium.
