The Sudbury Spartans return to action at home this Saturday June 23rd as they face the GTA All-Stars at James Jerome Field at 7:30pm. The Spartans will be hungry to get back in the win column at home after dropping two tough road contests the past two weekends. Last Saturday in Sault Ste. Marie, the Spartans seemed to run out of gas leading with 8 minutes to go in the 4th quarter before dropping a 23-10 final to the Steelers.
This Saturday’s game is sponsored by Active Therapy who will be on-hand with gift baskets for two lucky fans.
New this season, the Spartans are pleased to offer the Dellelce family hospitality beer tent will now be open for fans 19+ to enjoy cold beverages during all Spartans home games for fans ticketed at the event. The game goes on, rain or shine, so come on out, and cheer the Spartans on!
“The team has been faced with some adversity over the past two weeks, but we like what we see and the pace is really picking up as the guys really start to understand the offense and defensive playbooks,” said Spartan’s Head Coach Junior Labrosse. “We have faced a very strong team in Hamilton twice this season and played well in each contest. Results will follow the hard work the team is putting in at practice.”
With two regular season games left, this weekend’s game is pivotal to set the direction for the rest of the season and earning a post season position. After the GTA All-stars this weekend, the Sault Ste. Marie Steelers will pay there only visit to the Nickel City July 7th to play the Spartans at James Jerome.
Tickets for Saturday’s game will be available at the gate for $10 each. Football players and fans from all area high schools as well as the Joe MacDonald Football Youth League are welcomed to see the top tier of local Football this Saturday while the Jr. and Varsity Gladiators are on the road.
