THREE TIMES THE FUN FOR SPARTANS:


Star Beacon

— Not only did Friday night’s victory against the visiting Cleveland Knights give coach Rocco Dobran’s Conneaut Spartans at least four wins in a season for the first time since 2008, but it gave the Spartans three consecutive victories.

The last time Conneaut won three football games in succession?

Week 5, Week 6 and Week 7 of the 2002 season, when coach Ken Parise’s Spartans prevailed at Trinity in Week 5, 29-6, invaded and conquered Lakeside in Week 7, 22-18, then whitewashed visiting Edgewood, 24-0.
