It doesn't take that vivid of an imagination to see a 4-0 start for the Helias Crusaders.

A one-point overtime loss to start the season at Harrisonville and a frantic finish that came up just short against Hickman last Friday in Columbia both could have turned in Helias' favor.

But in reality, the Crusaders are 2-2 heading into Friday night's game against the Vashon Wolverines (2-2) at Adkins Stadium.

"Going through those first four games with that tough of a schedule and to be that close to being 4-0 could be tough on the kids and they could start to doubt themselves" Helias coach Phil Pitts said. "But they're not down, they're focused on what's ahead.

"We just need to fix a couple of things and we've done that and we're ready to keep fighting."
