This weekend, the Crusaders traveled to Bridgeport for the annual Catholic Tournament. On Friday, the Crusaders took on Bishop Donahue for the first game of the weekend. The Crusaders took an early 1-0 advantage over the Bishops in the Top of the 1st Inning, however Bishop Donahue would go on to score 9 unanswered runs in a 9-1 loss for the Crusaders.
On Saturday, the Crusaders took on Clarksburg Notre Dame in the first of two games. The Crusaders gained a lead over the Irish late in the game, however a 5-run 5th inning propelled the Irish to a 6-4 victory over the Crusaders. In the second game on Saturday the Crusaders took on the Madonna Blue Dons. This game was a wild back and forth game, however the Blue Dons emerged victorious due to a walk-off single in the bottom of the 7th.
The Crusaders improved this weekend as they successfully competed against quality Class-A competition. The Crusaders look to end a 5 game losing skid tonight against rival Williamstown. The game will take place at Marshall Field with first pitch scheduled for 5 PM. Let’s Go Blue!
