Keswick Christian played well defensively on the road in a 17-14, season-opening victory over Landmark Christian.

The Crusaders led 17-7 early in the fourth quarter, but Landmark pulled to within three points after recovering a fumble and returning it for a touchdown. The Crusaders’ defense held over the game’s final moments, though, preserving the victory.

“Defensively, we played very well. Offensively, we did not,” Keswick Christian coach Rick Sanson said. “Defensively, we gave up one drive all game for a touchdown.”

Derek Sanson, the coach’s son, recovered two fumbles and forced another to lead the Crusaders’ defensive effort.

T.J. Muscarella caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Taylor Angell to open up scoring for Keswick Christian. Angell later hooked up with Stephen Coleman for a 45-yard scoring strike.

Early in the fourth quarter, the Crusaders’ Ryan Broderick nailed a 33-yard field goal that turned out to be the winning score.
