CINCINNATI - The Turpin Spartans had a lot to prove as they faced rival and co-leader in the ECC the Redskins on Anderson’s home turf on Friday night and the Spartans made a big statement as remained unbeaten with a 42-14 win.
It marked the first time Turpin (7-2, 3-0) knocked off their neighborhood rival since 1990. The Spartans, who started the week atop the TSF Ohio DII-DIII rankings, bolstered their post-season resume with the win.
Anderson (3-4, 3-1), who entered the contest riding a three-game winning streak, took an early lead with a Kevin Rogers 1-yard touchdown run to go up 7-0.
Turpin then geared up the running attack with quarterback Connor Jensen (133 PaYd, 146 RuYd, 4 RuTD) scoring on three first-half runs while running backs Ryan Millikin and Spencer Singh each added rushing touchdowns.
Anderson running back Kamel Bradley had a long TD run of 46 yards, but Turpin took a 36-14 lead into the half.
The second half saw the rain and the Anderson defense slow the Turpin team speed as the teams were able to only combine for one score on Jensen’s fourth rushing touchdown of the game early in the third quarter.
Following the win Turpin returns home next week to face Milford next while Anderson is set to play host to Glen Este.
