The season openers for the young Spartans began with a couple of tight victories versus perennial 5A powerhouse Highland Thursday night.
The Freshmen won in a marathon shootout in the first game 56-49. Total yardage was off the charts as running back sRylan Chandler and Brant Etherington put up big numbers behind a tough offensive line.
The JV took home a challenging 19-13 victory in the night cap with stingy defense against a very potent Highland offense. The secondary held off Highland in the closing quarter with speed and toughness. Mason Harwood ended the night with a sack to finish off the Rams as time ran down.
Varsity opens the season this Saturday in the Holt Arena at 10am vs Stansbury, UT in the Rocky Mountain Rumble.
Minico Volleyball had a terrific jump start to their 2016 season with a road victory over Preston Wednesday in 3 sets. JV and Freshmen volleyball also took care of the Indians with JV winning in 5 sets and the freshmen winning in 2 sets. Spartan volleyball will be in action again on August 30th in Pocatello. Their first home match will be Sept 13th vs Jerome.
The Minico Boys Soccer Team started off 2016 with two victories! After going winless in 2015, the boys bolted into the win column by defeating American Falls at home in the opener 2-1 and then going on the road to defeat the Mountain Home Tigers 8-0.
On Friday Jake Link and Pablo Ramirez scored a goal a piece to lead the Spartans to victory. American Falls scored their single goal on a penalty kick in the final minute of play to make the score 2-1.
On Saturday Jake Link and Jose Cuevas got things rolling making two goals a piece to explode the Spartans into the lead. Wyatt Owen added a header goal off a corner kick along with goals from Juan Aguilar, Alex Gil, and Daniel Avila to push the win to 8-0.
Head Coach Armondo Tapia is pleased with what he’s seen so far from his team. The boys will be back on the field vs Hillcrest Knights @ Minico on Tuesday August 23rd at 4:30pm. The girls will also be in action Tuesday vs Hillcrest in Idaho Falls at 4:30pm.
