The Maine-Endwell Spartans had another explosive outing in Section 4 football on Friday night as they defeated long-time rival Johnson City 47-14 at Wildcat Stadium.  The Spartans were up 34-0 at the half.  M-E ups its record to 2-0 while the Wildcats fall to 0-2.

Spartan quarterback Joe Mancini started the offensive barrage with 6:24 remaining in the first quarter as he scored on a nine-yard run.  Speedster Ryan Brozovic intercepted a Jake Harding pass two minutes later to put the Spartans up 12-0.  It was the first of three TD's for the junior.

In the second half the Spartans added to their lead when Josh Chandler raced to an 85-yard touchdown run.  The Wildcats got on the board with a pair of touchdowns late in the second half but by then Maine-Endwell's lead was secure.

Next up for the Spartans is a home game at Maine-Endwell on Friday night at 7:00 P.M.  versus Chenango Valley.  The Warriors defeated Oneonta 34-21 Friday night to up their record to 2-0.  Maine-Endwell rolled to a 68-21 win over Oneonta in their opener last weekend.  The Spartans outscored their opponents 115 to 35 in their first two contests.
