ST. PETERSBURG — In a game that turned out to be mainly a defensive battle, Keswick Christian beat Bradenton Christian to go 1-0 in district.
The Crusaders, who built a 17-0 lead, were led by a defense that played superb in allowing only six first-half points. Senior defensive back Trevor Angell helped lead the charge with a 100-yard interception return in the second. Freshman linebacker David Bonderer had two fumble recoveries.
Crusaders quarterback Doug Sanson went 5-of-10 for 73 yards and one touchdown and sophomore running back Andrew Logue had two carries for 93 yards and one touchdown of 80 yards to close the Crusaders' scoring. Senior kicker and punter Kenny Lucas hit a 26-yard field goal to open the scoring and was 6 for 6 on PATS.
