Football: Canterbury 37, Bradenton Christian 0

ST. PETERSBURG — The Canterbury Crusaders (4-0) wasted very little time jumping on district foe Bradenton Christian (3-1) on Friday night.

They put together 48 minutes of dominant football and looked quite impressive on both sides of the ball in a lopsided 37-0 victory.

"We started strong and finished strong; this was the first time that we had beaten them in a couple of years," Canterbury coach Bill Jones said.

After several possessions in the first quarter, the Crusaders got on board as Josh Belton threw a 26-yard strike to Sammy Faucette. O'Shon Allen later scored on a beautiful 62-yard jaunt as he leaped over a defender to elevate the Crusaders to a 14-0 lead.

Faucette scored twice in the second quarter on runs of 45 and 17 yards as the Crusaders built a 28-0 lead at the break.

The Crusaders added a safety in the third quarter. Faucette, who was a force on both sides of the ball, scored his fourth touchdown on the night as Belton hit him with a 9-yard touchdown pass.

"The defense really rose up, and each week we reload," Jones said. "In the next couple of weeks we will have some critical district games coming up.

    NEW ORLEANS — Perhaps it was the chance to witness the first USF-Tulane game ever, or an opportunity to frolic in the French Quarter for a weekend. Or both.

    1. Saturday's triumph will do little to fortify USF's strength of schedule, but its strength-of-character quotient might have increased.
