By Andre Brown, Online Editor

On November 3rd at Germantown Supersite there was quit a big game on the gridiron

The Spartans who came into the game 13-0 faced the 3A City Champs when they faced the Saints of Neumann Goretti

While the Saints won the game 20-17 it wasn’t without drama down to the final second of the game

A rainy day which complicated the game early turned to sunshine as Goretti relayed on help from the defense as well as a beautifully thrown ball late in the 4th quarter that earned the win and a chance at the State 3A title

If you had to name a hero it would definitely go to QB Mekhi Warton who stayed poised after a questionable pass interference which gave the Spartans a lead late in the game

With about a minute and about 60 plus yards to go Warton took the challenge and accepted it to throw the game winning Touchdown
