Crusaders end season with loss Monday night at Webb City

WEBB CITY, Mo. — The disappointment was etched on his face. This wasn’t the way Phil Pitts and the Helias Crusaders wanted the season to end.

“We set our goals high and we’ll never lower them,” Pitts said after Monday night’s 63-21 loss to the Webb City Cardinals in a Class 4 sectional game. “We’re going to go back and study what happened and learn from it to make sure it never happens again.”
