The Spartans delivered a victory to the home crowd at Homecoming Friday night, defeating the Joliet Central Steelmen 30-6. An impressive rushing attack allowed the Spartans to control the game from the opening kickoff to the final whistle. The Spartans ground game was led by Jonathan Espinosa-Luna with a massive 107 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries, followed by Mason Gougis who racked up 84 yards and a touchdown on 6 carries, and Omar Elsherif adding 38 yards and a touchdown on 6 carries.  Quarterback Caron Johnson added to scoring with a beautiful 33 yard pass to Corey Jones for another touchdown.

Head Coach Justin Trovato was pleased with the win, “Overall it was a great team effort. Defense played lights out, flying to the football throughout the game. They forced 2 turnovers and got a safety. Offensively the run game was extremely effective allowing us to control the pace of the game. We had some of our key players get a little banged up during the game and guys were ready when their number was called!” The crowd was excited and did a good job supporting¬† their Romeoville Spartans. The student section even spilled onto the field to celebrate with the team.

Romeoville will play their final home game of the season Friday October 14 at 7:00pm on the stadium field against the Plainfield Central Wildcats.
