Nearly one-third into the 2016-17 season, many start to look for trends in a team's success. And, while it's early, Brentwood may have something worth watching as the new year dawns.
Following this past Thursday's 52-36 victory over host Sto-Rox that raised the Spartans' 2A, Section 2 record to 2-0, Brentwood heads into the final week of the 2016 with an overall record of 5-0. At 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Spartans meet Charleroi in the California tournament.
As impressive as the unbeaten mark, the 2A No. 3 Spartans have won all of their games by double-digit margins, and they are outscoring their opponents by a nearly two-to-one margin. They are averaging 56 points a game and yielding 28.8 points per contest.
Following the tournament, the Spartans host Springdale on Jan. 2, and they visit Northgate on Jan. 5. Both are section games. January also features a home game with Vincentian, the defending WPIAL champion in 1A.
