|Crusaders win clash with Hanna Hawks|
St. Joseph’s Crusaders left no doubt who the better team was when they clashed with division rival Hanna last Friday afternoon.
While the Crusaders and Hanna Hawks traded two touchdowns apiece in the opening quarter, the boys from Brooks eventually rolled to a 78-25 victory.
Hanna got off to a solid start when they recovered a fumble on the opening kickoff and marched the ball down the field for a touchdown. The convert was missed.
“It was a bad start. They kicked off short because they were smart enough to know not to kick to Andres (Rojas) and it went into the hands of one of our good ball players who is used to handling the ball. But he fumbled it and they recovered it. It just kind of put us on our heels,” said head coach Julian Annicchiarico. Full Story >
