The Crusaders had some big first quarter plays but came away empty.
Maurice Easterling returned opening kickoff 60 yards & later has a 25 yard interception return. The Crusaders got on board in thrid quarter. Taking the wind in 3rd quarter the Crusaders wanted to act quickly. Afte stopping St John's in there own end twice, Joe Collins connected with Maurice easterling on a 40 yd Td fade. Then Stepinac would take the lead for good on Joe Collins pass to Rashaad Slowley. In 4th period, Rashaad Slowley would add a 60 yard TD run. Jon Riddle caught 2 pt conversion from Joe Collins to put the game out of reach. Crusaders went on to win 16-13.
