CENTRAL VALLEY — On Friday night, Oct. 5 at Monroe-Woodbury High School, the Crusaders hosted the Washingtonville Wizards in front of a jam-packed and enthusiastic Homecoming Game crowd.

The Crusaders entered the contest with a 3-2 record, and needed a victory to earn a playoff spot.

The Crusaders set the tone of the game early when they stopped the Wizards' first drive.

When the Wizards' center snapped the ball over the punters head and out of the end zone for a safety the Crusaders were up 2-0.

The Wizards ensuing kick was downed near midfield. From there, quarterback Steve Campione broke off a run of 52 yards and then scored on a two-yard plunge.

When Mike Boyle hit the extra point, the Crusaders were up 9-0.

The Wizards fought their way back downfield and scored on a 30-yard field goal and the score was 9-3.

But with 51 seconds left in the quarter, Campione hit Danny Abrahams with a 52-yard strike and the Crusaders were up 16-3.

The Crusaders padded their lead when Campione threw his second touchdown pass, this time he found Peter Mastropolo for a 35-yard score and the Crusaders began to pull way 23-3.

With 6:36 left in the half, Nick Scancarello recovered a Wizard fumble. When Brandon Wasley ran it in from 23 yards out, the Crusaders were in control 30-3.

But Wizards hard-working quarterback Vinny Martello hit Ryan Hendricks with a 38-yard touchdown pass with 25 seconds left in the half to cut the lead to 30-10.

The Crusaders scored on their first possession of the second half when Dylan Wynn punched one in from two yards out, making the score 37-10.

From that point on the game was a defensive struggle with the Wizards scoring a safety with 6 minutes left in the game to bring the score to 37-12.

The Crusaders victory brings their record to 4-2 on the season.

Their next game will be at home on Friday when they take on the Valley Central High School Vikings on Senior Night.
