RIVERVIEW — Joshua Battle ran for 119 yards in the first quarter and scored two touchdowns in leading Spoto past Leto.
Spoto (3-7) scored two touchdowns within 40 seconds early in the game. Taking the opening kickoff, the team marched 67 yards in four plays, ending with Battle’s first touchdown on a 22-yard run.
On the ensuing kickoff, Todd Sims approached the ball but kicked the kicking tee as well. The tee went straight about seven yards, getting the focus of most of the Leto players, while the ball tumbled to the right the needed 10 yards, where a Spoto player landed on it.
Two plays and 40 seconds later, quarterback Kevin Hobley hit a wide-open Todd Sims for a 62-yard touchdown and a 13-0 lead.
Later in the first quarter, the Spartans scored two more touchdowns — this time, in a 20-second span.
Hobley hit Marc McCoy on a 35-yard TD, and on the first play of the next possession for Leto, the Ravens fumbled and Spoto linebacker Traverian Williams returned it 40 yards for a score.
