Touchdown!

The Crusaders are back in the WIN COLUMN for post-season play, downing Rose Hill Friday evening at Sellers Park, 38-13. The last playoff win for the Crusaders was in 2009 vs Ulysses (21-0). The boys in "Crusader Red" will advance and HOST Buhler next Friday @ 7PM, who downed Winfield 25-0, ending the season for the Vikings at 3-6.

Rose Hill hung around the 1st half but Wellington pulled away for the 25 point victory. The Crusaders last score of the game was by Freshman Michael Cullens, an 18 yd run. A freshman scoring on Friday night doesn't happen often in Crusader Land. Congrats to Michael!

Grey Hatfield was a work horse, again - rushing for 183 yds on 15 carries, scoring 3 touchdowns. Awesome performance! Junior Zane Cornejo recovered a fumble and returned it 23 yds for a score. Junior Silas Popplewell snagged a 7 yd reception from Michael Ledbetter for the game's first score. A good win for the Crusaders, more action to come - the season continues!!
