Crusaders lose third straight game

By Michael Hardison - Sports Editor

The Crusaders of Harrells Christian Academy suffered its third straight loss Friday night being taken down by Trinity Christian.

Not only does this mark a three game losing streak but Harrells also got shutout again, being unable to find the end zone for the third week in a row. Losing this time by a big margin yet again with a score of 46-0.

Unlike the previous two blowout losses where they played well defensively in the first half before falling apart in the second, they lost control of this game in the first.

They allowed Trinity Christian to score 16 points in the first quarter putting them in the hole early. They didn’t recover either as it was regrettable worse in the second quarter.

This time Trinity would almost double their first quarter scoring performance going for 30 unanswered points in the second quarter.

This brought the game to its 46-0 conclusion as neither team found the end zone the entire second half. As the offense for Harrells continues to struggle in finding any offensive production.

What little offense they had came from Malik Williams as he went for 25 yards of 6 carries, Tyshon Newkirk also had 1 reception for 15 yards.

Defensively Mar’chris Jackson led with 4 tackles and 2 tackles for loss, Williams had 3 tackles, Shaquor Newkirk added 2 tackle with 1 for loss and Cody Butler ended with 1 tackle, 1 for loss and 2 fumble recoveries.

After losing this conference match the Crusaders fall to 2-3 overall and 0-2 in the conference. They will be home next Friday to play a non-conference game against Charlotte Latin.
