Fortune favors the bold, no doubt about that. Down two scores in the third quarter, Mel Tucker left his offense on the field for fourth down again, needing a conversion to keep their chances alive. Payton Thorne delivered a beautiful ball down the field to Jayden Reed to convert the second HUGE fourth down for the Spartans' on Saturday.

The Spartans' once again followed this up with a smashmouth, HB dive for Kenneth Walker III's third touchdown of the game. The Spartans brought the game to one score as the third quarter began to wind down, 30-22.
