Last week, everything went wrong for the Crusaders. This week, everything went right, as Faith soundly beat the Bakersfield Christian Eagles 42-28 in week 2 of their season. Five minutes in the first quarter, Crusader quarterback Sagan Gronauer started the game strong with a 30 yard rushing touchdown, and after that, the game quickly went out of hand, with the final score ending up 42-28. Both sides of the ball played well, as the offense scored 28 points through the efforts of Gronauer (four total touchdowns, one interception) and receiver Peyton Thornton (86 yards, 2 touchdowns). The defense had a solid game as well, with players Greg Oliver and Keagan Touchstone each returning interceptions for touchdowns (Touchstone on the play set the new school record for interceptions in a career, 13). Dropped passes and poor play overall plagued the Eagles, as they were never truly able to string enough good plays together to mount a comeback. The Crusaders play the Chandler Wolves from Arizona on Saturday in the Polynesian Classic at Liberty High School.
