Tri-City Spartans claim championship

Schenectady-based team wins EFL championship

SCHENECTADY — With a dozen points and a dazzling defensive effort Saturday night at Schenectady High School, the Tri-City Spartans claimed this year’s Empire Football League championship.

“Our defense, they played lights out,” Tri-City head coach Darrin Earing Sr. said. “They were aggressive all game. The last couple games, we gave up more points than we normally have, but today they were hyped and they played great.”

The Schenectady-based Spartans, a second-year franchise that regularly practices at Mont Pleasant Middle School, topped the Mohawk Valley NightHawks 12-0 at Larry Mulvaney Field to take the EFL title. The Spartans were the top seed in this year’s postseason. Tri-City topped Plattsburgh 35-21 in last weekend’s semifinals, while Mohawk Valley had beaten Watertown 34-28 in its semifinal.
