(Exira) Only seven 8-Player teams in the state remain undefeated. Among those is an Exira-EHK squad that checks in at #7 in this week's Sports Spotlight poll and has been crushing everyone in their path this season. The Spartan's narrowest margin of victory this year has been 8 points (vs Woodbine Week 2). All other wins have been by at least three scores.
One of their largest wins came last week when they downed Villisca 72-18. Fueling the high point production was the defense which pitched in with three touchdowns. The Spartan "D" picked off five passes and recovered one fumble. Taber Anderson, Cody Jens, and Joe Harris all scored from the defensive side of the ball.
Offensively Trey Sander delivered 3 scores and 150 yards. Drew Peppers ran for 80 yards and 3 TD's. Drew Peppers, nursing an ankle injury, notched a 15 yard TD run on his only carry.
The Spartan's high octane offense will air on KSOM this week against the Ar-We-Va Rockets. Ar-We-Va and Heartland Christian are the only remaining teams in Exira-EHK's way of an undefeated regular season.
