Crusaders Run Past Franklin Square Warriors in 36-6 Win

Friday, 01 October 2010 00:00

This week’s practice for the 11-year-old Hicksville Crusaders focused mainly on the offense and the players responded with a 36-6 drubbing of the Franklin Square Warriors.

In the first home game of this season, quarterback Peter Capel opened the scoring with a completed pass to Julian Franco resulting in the Crusaders favor. Franklin Square was able to counter with their only score of the game early in the second quarter. That was the only six points that the Crusaders defense has allowed to date. Later in the quarter, Sean Lewis recovered a Warrior fumble giving the Crusaders great field position. It now became time for the Orange and Black offense to flex their collective muscles. Behind the blocks of Tom Fleming, Nick Savva, Taylor Collins and Matt Zwickel, running back McPartland took it home making the score 14-6.
