It wasn't supposed to be quite this easy.

"We expected to come out and execute like we did," Helias coach Phil Pitts said Saturday night after the Crusaders routed the Warrensburg Tigers 56-0 on Homecoming at Adkins Stadium. "On film, Warrensburg was a pretty good football team. But we did a lot of things well and I think things snowballed on them."

The snowball turned into an avalanche as the Crusaders score the first eight times they had the ball on their way to nearly 500 yards of offense in their Class 4 District 10 opener. Defensively, the Crusaders limited the Tigers to 105 yards and just four first downs.
