IRONDUKES Move To 6-1 / Wellington 22 Winfield 7

Week 7 brought another victory to the Wellington Crusader Varsity Football squad. The boys in red road tripped east to Viking Land and returned home a few hours later with a 22 -7 win. The Crusaders were up 14-0 at halftime and soon thereafter, up just by 7. However, a fumble in the red zone by Winfield resulted in a Wellington TD with 2:30 left in the game to go up by 15. Game over. Penalties hurt the Vikings, 95 yards worth...Crusaders ended game with just 20 yds, the fewest this season.
