Plains struck early in the game getting a 1-0 advantage. The Crusaders regained their composure and created many chances but could not find the back of the net. The Cardinals scored later in the first to make it 2-0. The Crusaders answered a few minutes later after Senior Riley O. made a terrific run in the box and was fouled creating a penalty kick opportunity.  Senior Ben D. stepped up and blasted the shot to the right corner.  Gaining momentum, the Crusaders stepped up their attack creating more chances. The Cardinals matched that intensity and finished on one of their chances making the score 3-1. In the second half, the Crusaders dominated play. With opportunities and physicality, they showed they did not want to quit. Unfortunately, the boys were unable to find the back of the net and fell to Plains 3-1. The boys' next game is Friday in Riverton in a preview of a regional match up.

Soccer Update:

The Crusaders kept their winning ways going with a 4-2 win last night against the Calvary Saints. The game was scoreless through the first 25 minutes until Seniors Ben D. and Will K. had a good combination of passes through the midfield to the 18 when Will took a shot and sent it low past the Calvary goalie. The score was 1-0 at half with the Crusaders dominating play to begin the second. Early in the second, Senior Riley O. started the scoring with a nice shot from distance into the far corner. Later in the half, Junior Jack W. was cruising to the goal until he got taken down in the penalty box earning the Crusaders a penalty kick. Ben stepped up and blasted the ball past the goalie making the score 3-0. Calvary answered fairly quickly making the score 3-1, but the Crusaders offense continued their dominance with Riley sending a perfect ball in off a free kick to Jack for the finish making the score 4-1. Calvary would score a goal late in the game, but the Crusaders held off their final attacks.  The team is back in action on Thursday in Lincoln.


Golf Update:

The guys are really starting to improve! Senior Ian G., and Senior Sam D. shot 53 and 55 respectively. The team scored 227 overall at a very tough course


Volleyball Update:

Auburn came in with a tough mentality and the Crusaders had control of game 1 for the most part until Auburn fought their way back and tied it 24-24.  The Crusaders maintained tough play, got a big kill out of the middle from Sophomore Chloe G. and took game 1 26-24.  Game 2 was a completely different story as the Crusaders settled down a bit and controlled the game from the beginning.  Feeding off of Chloe in the middle and a couple big kills from Seniors Kaitlyn W. and Katie E., the Crusaders sailed to an easy victory of 25-15.  Senior Seton T. led the back row with 12 digs and Sophomore Cara A. controlled the tempo with 15 assists.  The girls improve to 10-2 and will be heading to the Hill of Mt Pulaski to test their grit in a tough tournament this weekend.

Volleyball Update:  The volleyball team had a tough weekend of play.  They did a great job of controlling their first 3 pool play games going 3-0.  They went on to face Springfield High and took them to 3, but fell 25-21 in game 3.  The girls showed toughness and executed the game plan well; it just came down to a few crucial plays.  The last game was against 3A LaSalle Peru who is always a powerhouse, and even though the match went their way, our girls played hard and made our fans proud.  It was a great tournament and we are thankful to all the fans that came to support us during this first weekend of play!


Boys Soccer:  The men's soccer team faced two tough opponents this weekend in the Carlinville tournament. They opened against Hillsboro and lost 1-0 after a hard fought match.

Olive fought back and took it away midway through the first set.  However,  the Saders didn't quit... Tenacious defense and smart net plays paired with aggressive serving quickly took Mt Olive out of sync and the Saders claimed game 1, 25-16.  The Saders didn't slow down.  They controlled the entire 2nd set garnering a pretty comfortable lead.  The girls closed it out 25-16.  Senior Katie E. led the team with 12 kills, Senior Seton T. turned it up on defense with 12 digs and Sophomore Cara A. controlled the tempo with 26 assists!  Come support the team at our home tournament this weekend.

Volleyball Update:  The Crusaders had a tough battle last night verses a very good Hartsburg team.  The Lady Crusaders came out with a lead, but Hartsburg tied it out and game 1 was point for point until we took control and won 25-23.  The 2nd game wasn't much different, but Hartsburg came out with control.  However, being down by as many as 6 didn't stop the Crusaders from fighting for every point.  Gaining momentum with great serving and even better defense and capitalizing on a few Hartsburg errors, the Saders took game 2, 26-24.  It was a great home opener and we thank all our amazing and supportive fans!!


Soccer Update:  Last night, the Crusaders opened their season with a dominating 8-0 victory.  After struggling to find the net in the first 15 minutes, Freshman Jon Agard opened the 2016 campaign with a nice finish to the corner beating Collinsville's goalie. Minutes later, Senior Riley O. had a nice chip shot to the back corner making it 2-0. Senior Will K. wanted to make an exclamation point on the match with a screamer of a goal 3 minutes later.  Senior Ben D. added 3 goals of his own - one from 45 yards out!

Last night, the Lady Crusaders showed true character and heart as they battled for 80 minutes against a tough Pleasant Plains team.

Plains scored again bringing the score to 3-0, but a few minutes later Junior Katie E. hit a magnificent free kick from 35 yards to give the Crusaders momentum. However, Plains would score again, but the Crusaders did not give up! With under 10 minutes to play, Freshman Julie E. crossed a perfect ball to Senior Kiersten A. who scored and cut the lead in half. The Crusaders carried that momentum to the final seconds of play with Junior Abby I. scoring a goal with exactly 1 second left. Our girls lost 4-3, but showed great teamwork, determination, and character-battling to the very end.

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
