Sparta’s Matt Biever lands on top of Holmen’s Troy Knutson while making a catch in the fourth quarter of Friday’s game. Biever would maintain his balance, avoid spin off of Knutson to add a few extra yards to his recpetion before being tackled. Biever finished with two catches for 52 yards. The Spartan offense as a whole, however, was held to just over 200 total yards in a 41-21 loss Friday night. Herald photo by Nate Beier.

In a normal season, Friday’s match with Holmen would have been a high caliber, conference rivalry game for Sparta. However, as none of the games this spring count towards a conference championship, this year’s matchup becomes just another mundane note in the series between the Spartans and Vikings...
