Crusaders hold onto the ball, beat Kewpies

Crusaders hold onto the ball, beat Kewpies

September 24th, 2011 in News

Through five games, the formula for success has been pretty simple for the Helias Crusaders.

Don't turn the ball over, the Crusaders win. Turn it over a lot, the Crusaders lose. They turned it over just once Friday night against the Hickman Kewpies.

The formula still works.

"We did a great job of holding onto the ball," Helias coach Phil Pitts said after the Crusaders defeated the Kewpies 20-13 at Adkins Stadium. "Our kids really worked this week on not turning it over and it paid off tonight."
