SPARTANS HUNT EAGLES

THE SPARTANS will need to keep their focus on defense – as they do against Boonville at the Odessa jamboree last week – to bring down the Liberty Eagles on Saturday.

RICHMOND – The Richmond Spartans play the Liberty Eagles of Mountain View in the first full game of the season at noon Saturday at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar.

Coach Darin Acklin’s Eagles thumped the Spartans on the artificial turf last year, 61-19.

Coach Nick Persell expects better from the Spartans this year for two reasons – there are more returning players on Richmond’s team and more younger players on the Mountain View team.
