CLEARWATER — Keswick Christian coach Rick Sanson said it was the best defensive effort of the season. The Crusaders (3-3) held Calvary Christian (2-3) to fewer than 90 yards total offense.
"Outstanding effort by the defense," Sanson said. "Last week, when we were up against Cambridge 35-7, for many of these guys the game was over at halftime. All week we talked about finishing the game …and I think that got them focused on what they had to do."
Keswick Christian's offense specialized on plays from the 49-yard line. In the first quarter, Jakobi Wheeler had a 49-yard touchdown run, and in the fourth Doug Sanson completed a 49-yard touchdown pass to Trevor Angell.
Calvary's lone points came in the second when lineman Adam Smith sacked Sanson in the end zone for a safety.
