RIVERVIEW — Spoto's seniors were determined to keep their winning streak alive in their final game Thursday. Running back Brandon Williams led the Spartans to a 35-28 victory over Wharton, their third straight win, totaling more than 200 yards from scrimmage.
Spoto (7-3) answered Wharton's early score off a turnover with two touchdowns one quarter later.
After struggling most of the first half, Wildcats sophomore Chase Litton completed all of his attempts during a 78-yard drive he capped with a 24-yard strike to Deon Samson right before the half. Darius Page's conversion run tied the game.
Williams then took over. He scored on runs of 53 and 8 yards on the Spartans' first two drives of the second half. After Litton's 31-yard scamper and a Vernon Hargreaves conversion run pulled the Wildcats (5-5) within seven late, Williams iced the game with a first-down carry.
"I get stronger as I go. I told Coach the more you feed me, the stronger I get," he said of his career-high 23 carries.
