MONTGOMERY, NJ - The Immaculata Spartans improved to 5-3 on the season Friday night, with a 17-6 win over the Montgomery Cougars.  Montgomery is now 1-7.

The highlight of a quiet first half was a touchdown pass from Spartans quarterback Patrick Frauenheim to Noah Stansbury to give Immaculata a 7-0 lead at halftime.

Immaculata received the second half kickoff, but was forced to punt.  Montgomery drove the ball well, with a strong running game down inside the Spartans' 20 yard line.  But their drive stalled and their field goal attempt was blocked by the Spartans' Jimmy Kerwin.

The Spartans next drive was spearheaded by a 60-yard Shahkyle Matthews touchdown reception down to the Montgomery 17-yard line.  Zack Hellis finished the drive from there with a 36-yard field goal to give the Spartans a 10-0 lead.

In the fourth quarter Montgomery again moved the ball well, but a Matt Lynch interception for the Spartans ended their first drive.  Immaculata was unable to capitalize and had to punt.  This time, however, Montgomery was able to score and closed the game to 10-6.

Immaculata's Bryan Santana answered with a series of spectacular runs, ending with a 1-yard  touchdown run. This put the game out of Montgomery's reach late in the fourth quarter.

Next Friday the Spartans return home to face the undefeated Stateliners from Phillipsburg.
