WELLINGTON 07 MULVANE 14
The IRONDUKES made their trip to post-season this year a little more difficult Friday evening, falling to the Mulvane Wildcats 14-7. Wellington, going in averaging 376 yds of total offense per game in their previous 7 outings, could only muster 227 yds on Wildcat turf and never found the end zone again after their late first quarter score. A somewhat mediocre Mulvane team kept pace with Wellington, capitalizing on 1 or 2 big plays and took the lead for good as the 3rd qtr. ended. Turnovers hurt the boys in red - 2 fumbles and 2 interceptions and things just never quite clicked. "2" more injuries to add to the list - Joey Lewallen out with knee injury (possible ACL) and Jason Norris left the game in the 2nd half with a probable concussion - exact extent on either not known at this time. Mulvane and Wellington are now both 1-1 in district play, Ulysses defeated Rose Hill to move to 2-0, the Rockets fall to 0-2. This coming Friday's game at Ulysses now becomes a "must win" for the Crusaders and some good fortune with the outcome at the Rose Hill vs Mulvane game. It ain't over til it's over and it ain't over - GO BIG RED!!
