Lewis connected with Jalen McClary (60-yards) on his first touchdown strike and his next would land in the hands of Derrick Simms for 57-yards. Eugene rushed the ball 15 times as he gained 66 yards and the game’s opening 7-yard touchdown scamper. Running back George Simms ran for almost 200 yards (189) on 23 carries for an average of 8.2 stripes per tote.
The win was redemption from last year’s, 14-0, loss to the Crusaders. Now, the Spartans have defeated Coughlin, six of their last seven meetings.
