Sharp Dressed Win!

The Crusaders Varsity team took the field on Saturday down their starting and back-up Qb’s but uplifted in spirits with the reveal of their new white “alternate/away” jerseys. Tyrome Good and Maxwell Robinson-Grey shared snaps in a game that highlighted the speed and arm strength of each athlete. The defensive game was on point as well as the Crusaders forced several key turnovers that kept the Tennessee offense visibly frustrated most of the game. With a comfortable lead at halftime the Crusaders lived up to their chant of “All Gas, No Brakes” and ran away with a high scoring victory to keep the PFL win streak going.

Final Score:

Crusaders 42

Silverbacks 14

A “BIG” 4th Quarter Win!

The Crusader JV team needed only one quarter of play to beat the Silverbacks of Tennessee on Saturday 26-14. It just happened to be the final quarter of the game. “This wasn’t the game plan” Coach Ray said after the game, “We made some costly turnovers early but we never gave up turned it on at the end of the game…I’m proud of these boys”. The Crusaders offense had solid drives in the first half only to let them slip away with costly turnovers. Tennessee grabbed momentum with a blown coverage pass and several missed tackles which had them up by 14 late in the 3rd Quarter. The Crusaders answered late in the 3rd with solid scoring drive and never looked back as they rattled of 26 straight points to finish off the Silverbacks in the 4th quarter.

Crusaders Prevail over Cavs

It was the battle of the undefeated’s Friday night at Westminster Catawba Christian as the Carolina Crusaders took on the visiting Cavaliers. The game remained scoreless after the 1st Quarter and a 30 minute lighting delay. The Crusaders made several mistakes including two muffed punt attempts which allowed the Cav’s to score a touchdown and field goal to make it a 9-0 game. The Crusaders answered late in the game after a voluntary safety call and a defensive stand with a 1 yard run by Frankie Martinez. With the score 6-11 1:20 left on the clock and Anderson scrambling to run the time out, Drake Jenkins forced a fumble and returned it for a touchdown and a 12-11 lead. With only 46 seconds left on the clock the Cavs ran out of time and the Crusaders came away victorious.

Final Score:

Crusaders 12

Cavaliers 11

Saints Shut Out!

The Varsity Crusaders came out strong and did not let up on Saturday night under the lights at home. Dalton Moon hit Tyrome Good for a 40+ yard TD strike to get things going on the first possession of the game. Tyrome added 2 additional Td’s which included a 80+ yard punt return that displayed the dynamic speed of the Crusaders. Frankie Martinez and Zach Otero added a touchdown each of their own to make the score 32-0. Congratulations to the the Carolina Crusaders for their big win against the Saints.
