In a pregame ceremony, some of Wellington's "First Responders" were honored on the field. They were guests of the Crusaders for the evening. We can't thank them enough for what they do for all of us.
It was a mixed bag for the Crusaders Saturday evening at Sellers Park. First game of the season can be that way. There were moments of good execution but also moments of inability to capitalize and/or misfortune of one sort or another. The Spartans, now 2-0, scored in every quarter, sustaining momentum and securing the 35-13 win. They've scored in every quarter so far this season I believe, with a similar win over Mulvane Week 1.
The entrance to the field by the Crusaders was awesome - with it being the 20 year anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center buildings in NY, a most appropriate and honorable start to the game.
