On Sept. 28, the Baker Spartans hosted the Roundup Panthers for the Spartan’s fourth football game of the season. Kickoff was at 7 p.m. The Spartans received the ball and started marching down the field but were stopped and forced to punt. Baker then held Roundup and forced them to turn the ball over very quickly. The game went back and forth throughout the first half but neither team could manage to score.
After halftime Baker came out strong and were playing hard but the Panthers still managed to get into the end zone once for a touchdown. The Spartans came out with a vengeance after the score by Roundup and started marching right down the field. In the fourth quarter Riley O’Donnell scored for the Spartans on an 8 yard run. Riley also ran into the end zone for a 2 point conversion to put the Spartans up 8-6. Baker kept playing hard and Garrett Lesh intercepted the ball, setting the stage perfectly for another Spartan touchdown, a 4 yard run also by Riley O’Donnell. After beating Roundup, their first conference win, the Baker Spartans remain undefeated at home.
