Spartans stumble in first football outing | Photo gallery

The Spartans had plenty of spirit and a full house of fans Friday, Sept. 1, but didn’t manage quite enough points in their first outing of the year to snag a win against the visitors from North Kitsap.

The Bainbridge High varsity football team suffered a 42-21 stumble in their season debut, playing catch-up from early on in the night.

BHS got off to a rough start right off, trailing 14-0 by the end of the first quarter.

They came back well in the second, however, and outscored the Vikings, 7-6, to end the first half down a seemingly manageable 20-7.

The third quarter was a close one, with the Spartans trailing — but only just barely — 8-7. It seemed to many to be Bainbridge’s game then, with mounting momentum and a closing points gap spurring the Spartans’ offense.

In the fourth, though, the Vikings poured on the gas and took charge in a 14-7 performance, securing the win.

The Review’s Luciano Marano was there to capture all the highs and lows of the first football game of the year. His favorite shots are collected here.
