The Spruce Mountain Phoenix took the long drive from Jay/Livermore Falls to Ellsworth and came away with a dominating 62-24 over the Ellsworth Eagles at Tug White Stadium on Friday, September 9th.

Ellsworth had difficulty moving the ball against the Phoenix' defense, and turned the ball over numerous times, giving Spruce Mountain excellent field position most of the night. The game was played under running time midway through the 2nd Quarter.
