ST. PETERSBURG — The seniors showed up in full force on Senior Night for the host Crusaders, who rolled past their long-time rival.
The Crusaders (6-4), who are heading to the playoffs, scored on their first two possessions, a 2-yard run by senior Jakobi Wheeler and a 55-yard pass from senior Doug Sanson to senior Trevor Angell.
Quarterback Robbie Williams threw three interceptions for Northside (2-8), two to Sanson. Trevor Angell ran the third back 47 yards for a touchdown.
Wheeler's second touchdown came on a 3-yard run in the third quarter.
Crusaders coach Rick Sanson praised his seniors.
"This is a group of role players, and I am really proud of them," he said.
"They came along to be leaders."
