The exciting first quarter had both teams running kickoffs back for touchdowns, but the Falcons' was called back on a penalty. Quarterback Kyle Kearns threw a touchdown pass, and later handed off the ball for another touchdown, amassing 13 points against the Spartans. But it was a losing effort, with the Spartans winning 35-13 with a strong second-half performance.
Kearns was injured in the fourth quarter with a dislocated elbow but is expected to return to the field for the Nov. 4 game against Monte Vista.
