Varsity moves to 3-2 in League with win over Xavier
Posted Sunday, October 16, 2005 by Mike ODonnell
Xavier entered the game with a 4-1 record in CHSFL play. Xavier opened the game up with a 78 yard bootleg throwback that caught Stepincac defenders by suprise. The Crusaders answered back in the second quarter scoring on a Slowley 18 yard run. Riddle followed with extra point which proved to be game winner. Both teams were scoreless the rest of the way, with field position playing a major role. The Crusader kept Xavier pinned in their own end most of second half. Xavier did drive ball on last drive but two big defensive plays by Bubba Philp saved the day. Bubba knocked down a pass across the middle on 3rd down & came up with a big sack forced fumble on 4 th down so the Crusaders took over the ball. The Crusaders moved to 3-2 in CHSFL & will play Fordham Prep on Sat at 1:30 at Jack Coffey field in Bronx.
