Road trip west again fruitful, Spartans 8-0

COLUMBIA — Webb had little trouble handling Zion Christian Academy 50-7, and staying undefeated Friday night.

In fact, the Spartans wasted no time getting started.

On the opening kickoff, Aaron Blance ran the length of the field to put the Spartans (8-0, 4-0 Division II-A East-Middle) up 10 seconds into the contest. After one snap out of the back of the end zone, and another mishandled snap recovered on the 25-yard line, Jim Dolinak found the goal line.

“All season we have kept our minds and goals toward state and an undefeated season. Tonight was no different,” Dolinak said.

A Bryan Berube touchdown capped off the first quarter, which was played solely on Zion's half of the field.

Dolinak added, “Our defense has given us a lot of opportunities to make everything we do happen."

When the Eagles thought a 22-0 deficit was enough though, Aaron Blance thought otherwise.

His 68-yard pass reception from Parker Wormsley and 55-yard sprint for a score allowed the starters to be pulled with 5:13 left in the second quarter.

Blance used the opportunity Friday to elapse the 600-yard mark and gain touchdowns number seven, eight and nine on the season.

“Even without his brother to offset him, he is ridiculous,” said Dolinak, alluding to Caleb Blance who missed his second straight game with a knee injury.

Webb posted a 43-0 lead at half and each team would find the end zone once before the final whistle blew.

“We are always working towards a state championship and we are trying to improve every week,” junior linebacker Brewer Congleton said. “We can't be complacent.”

Brennan Liu said, “We just have to think that we have to get better because none of the other teams are going to slack off.”

The two toughest games of the year still loom as Webb hosts 6-2 Davidson Academy Friday, Oct. 22, at Faust Field. The Spartans close regular season play by traveling to Donelson Christian Academy (Nashville) Oct. 29.
