The Crusaders played host Friday evening to the Andale Indians, both hoping to avenge earlier season losses at Andale, one would, one would not. The Varsity Lady Crusaders came to play Friday night and controlled the tempo for nearly the entire game. With a margin of 8 pts. at half, Wellington would sustain and add to that down the stretch to avenge their earlier season loss by 5. Final score this time around Wellington 47 Andale 35. An awesome job by the Lady Crusaders who move to 12-4 on the season. "3" Lady Crusaders were in double figures, Lauryn Snipes pumped in 16, followed by Tayland French 12 and Avery Rusk 11. Shayland French and Jacelyn Buck both pitched 4.
In the Varsity Boys nightcap, early on the Crusaders kept pace and challenged the Indians on both ends of the court. The Indians pulled away some towards the end of the 2nd qtr and lead by 7 at half. The final two qtrs did not go well for the team in red, Wellington scoring 14 in the 3rd and only 1 in the final quarter resulting in the final score Wellington 29 Andale 55. Only "4" Crusaders provided towards the offensive cause, Ian King with 13, AJ Snipes 12, Khalil Boyer 3 and De Andre Washington 1, the only point in the 4th qtr. The Crusaders fall to 5-11 on the season.
