The Spartans pick up their first win of the season edging their rivalry, Muncy, 21-14. The Indians needed this win to clinch the final District 4 Class A playoff spot but Hughesville played their best game of the season and ended their hopes.

Hughesville junior Clint Snyder put the score on the board first with a 37-yard touchdown reception and scored the final touchdown on a 63-yard rush giving the Spartans a 14-point lead with under 5 minutes remaining. He finished with 123 yards rushing and caught three passes for 78 yards. Snyder rushed for 46 yards on his first 15 carries, but for 77 on his last four. The majority of those on his 63-yard touchdown run down the left sideline that was opened up by Alex Welch.

Hughesville’s third-quarter turnover led to Anthony Barberio’s 3-yard touchdown run to make the score 14-7. Muncy drew close when with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Barberio to Eli Warnick, (21-14), but the ensuing onsides kick was recovered by Hughesville.

The Indians will play this Friday night on their own field in the Eastern Conference playoffs at 7 p.m.
