Stars of the game: The night belonged to Mackey and Pettenger. Mackey scored four touchdowns; Pettenger had two interceptions and a touchdown.

Stat of the Game: Six turnovers caused by the Crusaders.

Final word: "We were very proud of the team tonight. They had a tough week of practice. Our goal this season is to finish 11 games, and tonight was just one week through the journey." — SCA offensive coordinator Travis Puleo
