Spartans Beat Fulton On Homecoming Night For First Win

The Moberly Spartans scored 25 unanswered points in the first half and beat Fulton 32-22 for their first victory of the season on homecoming night. The Hornets marched down the field on their opening drive and scored first on a 28-yard touchdown pass from Dustin Hagens to Walker Gohring. The Spartans took advantage of a series of Fulton mistakes to go on their run. The Hornets messed up a punt snap, turned the ball over on a fumble, an interception, and on downs to set Moberly up in prime field position. The Spartans got a pair of touchdown runs each from Derieus Wallace and Gage St. Clair to make the score 25-6. Coach Cody McDowell…
