The Spartans extended their lead to 17 on a touchdown pass from Bennie Stoll to Tyler Schnitzler with a little over 3 minutes left in the first half.

The Spartans added two scores in the fourth quarter, a Bohenek 4-yard rush and a 33-yard pass from Stoll to Bohenek to down the Trojans 31-17 to remain undefeated (5-0).
