Spearville opens playoffs with 30 point road win at Little River

After coming up just short of the state championship in 2017, the Spearville Lancers haven't had the same kind of success in the 2018 regular season--which is to say they didn't finish unblemished.

A 6-2 mark was only good enough for third place in the tough 6th district of 8-man Division 1, but in the playoffs a brand new season begins, of course.

That new season means a chance to get back to sub-state and beyond, and Spearville started off with a big 54-24 road win at previously 7-1 Little River.

The Lancers jumped out to an early 34-0 lead that proved to be insurmountable for the Redskins, who scored all but 6 of their points after the break.

Spearville will now go to district rival Hodgeman County, a team that just two weeks ago blasted the Lancers 54-8.
