The final result wasn't what they wanted.

But the Helias Crusaders were pleased for the most part with their effort Thursday night.

"We played pretty well," Helias coach Chuck Register said after the Crusaders dropped a 2-1 decision to the St. Francis Borgia Knights at the 179 Soccer Park. "I think we played like we were already in mid-season form, there are just a few things we need to work on to push us over the hump to play for 80 minutes, not 70 minutes."

The Knights tallied the game-winner with about five minutes remaining.

The goal came after a scramble among a slew of Crusaders and Knights in front of the Helias net. Adam Meyer scored for Borgia on a play where Helias missed on opportunities to clear it.
