Crusaders edge Ridgway Elkers 7-0 to clinch D9 playoff berth

October 29, 2011

The Elk County Catholic Crusader football squad picked up a hard-fought 7-0 victory over the visiting Ridgway Elkers on a cold and muddy Friday evening at Dutch Country Stadium in St. Marys. With the win, the Crusaders should have secured a spot in the District 9 playoffs.
"The whole team played well. It was a total team effort tonight on both sides of the ball," said ECC coach Travis Skrzypek. "They kind of believed in what we were trying to tell them on offense. They stuck with it. It was hard going in the mud tonight, but they finally punched the one (touchdown) in at the end."

KARNS CITY - The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch football team closed out their regular season Friday night at Karns City, where the Gremlins downed the Dutch by a 33-21 score.
The Gremlins built a 20-6 first-half lead and led 33-6 after three quarters. The Dutch were able to put 15 points on the board in the final eight minutes of the contest.
“We played with a lot of effort,” said St. Marys coach Joe Schlimm. “We’re undermanned right now. Hopefully our season isn’t over and hopefully we can get healthy for the playoffs, but right now I don’t know.”
