A career night for running back Isaac VandenBush led the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans to an easy victory over the Southern Door Eagles Friday night in Brussels. VandenBush scored six touchdowns as the Spartans turned a close 21-14 game into a second-half blowout victory.
The Eagles struck first with a 17 yard run by quarterback Alex Daoust with 4:09 left in the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead. Luxemburg-Casco responded with an electrifying 83-yard run by VandenBush to tie the game late in the first quarter. After another Vandenbush score, the Eagles tied up the game again with 2:11 left in the half on a seven-yard pass from Doaust to Nick Baudhuin. The Spartans then scored a crucial touchdown with only 27 seconds left in the half on a three-yard run by VandenBush. From that point on the Spartans scored 35 unanswered points to cruise to victory. The Spartans' first offensive play in the second half was a 60-yard touchdown strike from Owen Deprez to Ryan Routhieaux.
Luxemburg-Casco (2-1 overall) will return home to play the Seymour Thunder in a non-conference game next Friday. Southern Door (3-1 overall) travels to Sheboygan Falls in a non-conference game next week.
