The CRUSADERS got their first 2019 taste of victory Friday night, on the road in Altamont (Labette County Grizzlies). Final score WHS 21 LCHS 00. The Crusaders 0-5 going in vs. the Grizzlies 3-2, played solid football, chalking up over 300 yds of offense, about 110% more than in most previous games this season and the first 100+ yd rusher for the Crusaders emerged as well. Kudos to Junior Trace Rusk who carried the ball 27 times for 123 yds and a TD! 

Penalties were a problem for the Crusaders, a big problem. 17/150 yds. Numerous illegal procedure calls and personal fouls. Clean that up and the night would have shined completely. The weather didn't turn out too bad. The winds died down and temps hovered around 40 or so - could have been much worse.

Also scoring for the boys in red, Silas Popplewell and Zane Cornejo. Senior kicker Karsten Gill went 1/2 on PATS, his first misfire of the year. Gage Cunningham chalked up a 2 pt conversion to bring the score total back in alignment. Things were click'n. 

The excitement with the players at the end of 4 was obvious. Maybe the spark will light the fire and who knows what could shake out in the end? Tough battle coming up next Friday, HERE at HOME. Now 5-1 Winfield, after their 17-0 win over El Dorado this week, will come a callin', with former WHS Head Football Coach Linn Hibbs still at the Viking helm. Also that night, the 1969 WHS STATE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS will be honored with a tail-gate gathering outside the stadium and then introductions to the crowd at halftime. It's been 50 years since that glorious moment in Crusader Football History. Come out and support the 2019 team and honor those from '69. This is the 100th year of Crusader Football - still lots of action to come!
