Moments later, Solon intercepted Anamosa quarterback Austin Seehusen deep in Raider territory. Two passes to Nathan Hawkins later, there was less than a minute elapsed on the clock, and Solon had taken a 14-0 lead over the winless Anamosa Raiders.
The Spartans rumbled to a 64-3 win Friday night, moving their record to 5-1 on the season, and an unblemished 3-0 in conference play.
