Crusaders fall to Terriers

Staff Reports's picture

North Greenville dropped a messy, rain-delayed 42-27 loss to Wofford College last Saturday night, moving the Crusaders’ record to 1-1 on the season.

The Crusader defense forced Wofford into a three-and-out on their first drive of the game and North Greenville quickly drove down the field on an eight-play, 70-yard scoring drive.

A tough performance from Eastside wide receiver Ty Thomason was not enough for the Eagles to hold off Christ Church, which used a fourth quarter comeback to win its 43rd consecutive game Friday night.

Fourth quarter surge dooms Eagles

The 42-game winning streak was in trouble Friday night.

Eastside quarterback Drake Turnquist had just found Ty Thomason on a touchdown connection with time winding down in the third, giving the Eagles a 28-16 advantage over Christ Church.

That’s when everything fell apart for Eastside.

Cusano threw for one touchdown on 10 of 12 passing, rushing for a score as well.
