SWMS football got off to a rough start as they dropped their opening games against visiting Franklin Simpson. The 7th grade game saw the Spartans pick up an unusual 3 safeties in the game, as the offense came up short in the red zone on several possessions. The Wildcats scored late in the 4th to preserve the 14-6 win. The Spartans (0-1) will return to action on Tuesday, Aug 27 @ Drakes Creek.
The 8th grade game saw the Spartans fall behind early, as several of the Spartans were missing in the 1st quarter of action. The Spartans fought hard to overcome the deficit but fell 38-20 to the Wildcats. The Spartans showed great signs of improvement, from a team that lost to Franklin 36-0 last year as 7th graders. The Spartans (0-1) will next play @ Drakes Creek on Aug 27.
