Sparta High School

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.
