Like most teams during wet conditions, the Helias Crusaders have been able to get on the practice field just a handful of times. But that doesn't mean they've been limited to time in the gym.

"We're probably pretty fortunate," Helias coach Chris Wyrick said. "We've probably gotten more work in than a lot of teams because we've been using our parking lot."

And the Crusaders will be relying on their defense this season, starting with today's 5 p.m. game in Westphalia against the Fatima Comets.
