3 games in 4 days is a tough schedule at any level but we do all this to prepare these young men for the High School level and the best chance they can get to hang another banner. So we accepted the challenge when it was presented.

Knowing full well we were going to be tired and somewhat sluggish the Crusaders did all they could to over come the long week. The first quarter went well but the legs just weren’t there on the shots. The effort was better from Friday night hit the short turn around provided to be toich going into halftime as Wirt County pulled away. With solid guard play and a couple big bodies Wirt controlled much of the second half as the boys in blue just could gain any traction to make the run needed.

Leading scorer for the Crusaders was Blake Lewis with 11 points. They will take the court again on January 22nd at Parkersburg Christian School for a 5:30pm start.
