“We were expecting a tough game,” Lindsey said. “We knew they were going to hit us. We were going to hit back and keep fighting. That is what our whole team did. We kept fighting. We kept pounding at him (Jevens). You got to hit those big boys low. We could tell he was starting to wear down.”

The CHA offense kept heating up as the game progressed. When Lindsey wasn't piling together his 122 passing yards, the junior ran for 91 yards and a TD. The Crusaders' only other score came on a 16 yard pass to Nathan Sosa.

“We stay after practice throwing for hours,” Blair said. “When times like this come, we are always connecting with our passes and catches. We want to win out the rest of our games.”

Christian Heritage moved to 3-3 overall and 2-1 in district. Dibble fell to 4-2 and 2-1.
