SEFFNER — Seffner Christian held a seven-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, but two turnovers cost the Crusaders.
The Crusaders failed to recover a squib kick, giving Mount Dora a short field to tie the game at 19. After Seffner Christian fumbled later in the quarter, Mount Dora went on a nine-play, 58-yard drive for the winning score.
"Turnovers hurt us tonight," Seffner Christian coach Steve Lewis said. "We did enough things to win, but we did enough things to lose, too."
Seffner Christian reached the Mount Dora 6-yard line in the final minute. After completing one pass, the Crusaders threw three straight incompletions.
Crusaders quarterback Tanner Richardson had an 85-yard kickoff return TD and a 69-yard TD pass to Garrett Saunders.
