Americas running back Aaron Dumas collected 199 yards and three touchdowns in the first half alone and helped lift the Trailblazers over the Spartans 39-21 at the SAC Thursday night. 

The Spartans walked on the field hoping to send off the seniors with a win in their final home game. With playoff implications only adding to the pressure, the Spartans started strong with a 38-yard touchdown pass from Sebastian Ochoa to Isaiah Davis within the first minute of the game.

Quickly after, the Trailblazers responded with a scoring drive of their own as Aaron Dumas ran it in for a 17-yard touchdown.   

Late in the second quarter, the Trailblazers took the lead and control of the game. Being able to stop Dumas was a problem for the Spartans. Much like when the Spartans failed to stop Midland’s quarterback Suddin Sapien, they were having issues stopping Dumas.

“You know, we just got to suck it up,” head coach Mark Torres said. “We got beat in old school football, they ran right at us, and we didn’t respond very well.”

According to Devean Deal, the Spartans have to get back to the drawing board and remain focused. 

The next two games are must wins for the Spartans if they want to get a playoff spot, and it does not get easier as they go on the road to take on the Franklin Cougars Friday night, Nov. 2.

“If we don’t play a perfect game they’ll score a 100 points on us and we won’t drop a dime,” Torres said regarding next week’s game. “If we have any pride about ourselves we’ll come ready to work. We have no choice, but to come out and play above our head because if we don’t, we will get embarrassed.”
