Crusaders to start league play in Langley

Holy Cross falls to Bateman Timberwolves for first loss of the preseason

In their final preseason game of the season, the Holy Cross Crusaders learned how much mistakes can cost them.

The B.C. High School Football Association team fell 17-10 at home to the Robert Bateman Timberwolves Saturday afternoon at Holy Cross Regional High School.

“It was a frustrating loss today,” said Crusaders head coach Conrad Deugau of the defeat, the first in four preseason games. “We took too many penalties and it cost us. Bateman capitalized on our mistakes. Full credit to them. They came in and took it to us.”

Running back Jordan O’Reilly scored the lone Crusaders touchdown. Marcus Browne led the defense with a pair of interceptions.

The Crusaders are at McLeod Park in Langley today (Friday) for their first regular season game in the Senior AA category against a Southern Conference rival, the Langley Saints. The Saints were also 3-1 (won-lost) in preseason play.

Langley was in North Delta last weekend for their final preseason game, and defeated the Seaquam Seahawks 32-16.

The Seahawks, who play in the Senior AAA Pacific Division, will start their regular season tomorrow (Saturday) at home against the Salmon Arm Golds.
