Spearfish lost to Pierre 103-0 Thursday night in the Class AA playoffs in Pierre. After the game Spartan coach Chad McCarty would only say Pierre has a good team, but he did say all classes need a running clock and mercy rule. “You can still bring only so many guys on the bus when they come to  a place across the state.” said McCarty. “I understand the idea that you should be able to sub down low enough to get things done, but when you don’t sub down and you keep doing things like running a fake punt up 54-0, then it doesn’t matter. There should be a running clock and mercy rule.”
