A packed crowd at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex Friday night saw the Spartans defeat the Marinette Marines 13-6 in a defensive struggle on Senior Night. L-C struck early on a 78 yard touchdown pass and run from quarterback Garritt Aissen to Austin Tlachac in the first quarter. The Spartans extended the lead to 13-0 on the first play of the second quarter on a 3 yard run by Nathan Coisman.
Marinette cut the lead to 13-6 on a Samuel Drees touchdown before the halftime intermission. The 17 seniors for Luxemburg-Casco were honored during a halftime ceremony.
Both teams played a tough second half defense as the Spartans held to win the nail-biter. The Marines had one last chance in the final minute as they drove to the Spartan 28 yard line only to have Ian Doell intercept a pass at the goal line on the final play of the game to secure the victory for L-C.
Luxemburg-Casco (3-1, 3-2 overall) will now travel to Freedom next Friday night to take on the Irish. Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call on WBDK 96.7 FM as the pregame will be at 6:30 p.m. with kick-off set for 7 p.m. The game will also be streamed live on-demand at DoorCountyDailyNews.com as well as on facebook live.
