The game was close after the first half, as the score was tied at 21.

The second half was all Turpin however, as the Spartans were able to shut down the high-tempo Redskin offense. They didn’t allow a score for the remainder of the game.

Turpin forced two turnovers, which both came on interceptions. They also held their own multiple times on fourth down as the Redskins went 1-5 trying to convert fourth down attempts.

Anderson ended the game with only 26 rushing yards, most of which came by two long carries for 12 and 23 yards. The other 20 carries for the Redskins, went for -9 yards.

Volpenhein was the leading passer of the game, throwing for 303 yards with a touchdown, as well as the two interceptions.

With the win, Turpin was able to clinch a playoff spot. They have now clinched in each of the past two seasons.
