Taylor Angell’s 20-yard pass to T.J. Muscarella in the third quarter proved to be the winning score in Keswick Christian’s 30-14 victory on the road over Southwest Florida Christian.
Angell, a junior quarterback, had three touchdowns total. He connected with tight end Carl Curtiss in the second quarter on a 65-yard catch-and-run for the Crusaders’ first points of the game. He added a 20-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter on a keeper play.
After a scoreless first quarter, Keswick Chrisitian entered the break ahead 7-6.
“We had a sluggish first half,” Keswick Christian coach Rick Sanson said. “I think the two-and-a-half hour drive down there had something to do with that.”
Southwest Florida Christian scored a third-quarter touchdown and converted the two-point conversion to tie the game at 14-all before Angell’s scoring pass to Muscarella put the Crusaders ahead for good.
Keswick Christian’s Kristian Craig had a 45-yard touchdown run off tackle in the third quarter. Ryan Broaderick added a 30-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for the Crusaders’ final points.
