Last week, the AAA Crusaders renewed acquaintances with the Kelvin Clippers in John Potter Division semi-final action.
In week two action of regular season play, the AAA Crusaders (7-0) struggled to a hard-fought victory over a resilient Kelvin (3-4) Clipper team.
The semi-final game proved more of the same as the Clippers fought back from an 11-0 deficit to tie the game at the half. It was a 65-yard reception by Scott Naujoks from quarterback Nicholas Cobb that proved the difference, re-establishing a lead that the Crusaders would not relinquish.
AAA Crusader touchdowns were scored by Danny Militano (75-yard reception), Chad Okumura (40-yard run). Christian Hansen kicked a 39-yard field goal, a convert and a single and Ivasyk Chabluk added two converts.
The AA Crusaders were not as successful in their semi-final match with Garden City.
The Gophers established some early success ruinning up the middle. The Crusaders responded well, but then they had troubles stopping the Gopher passing attack.
The Crusaders were down 13-0 and 29-14 at different parts of the game and did manage to come back strong in both cases. In the end, the Crusaders could not muster the additional score that they needed and lost 36-29.
