Create: 09/29/2018 - 07:46

The IRONDUKES took their show on the road for the 3rd time this season and for the 3rd time, came HOME with a "W"! Now 4-1, the Crusaders downed (0-5) Rose Hill 38-7 in Friday night action at the Home of the Rockets.

Much like last week's game vs Augusta, the Crusaders were a little slow out of the starting blocks, with just a 14-7 lead last week at halftime vs the Orioles and just a 14-0 lead Friday night vs Rose Hill after 1 half of play. The offense came alive in the 2nd half, including a 25 yd FG by Junior Karsten Gill plus "3" PAT's! Way to go #40! QB Michael Ledbetter scored two TD's on 1 yd runs, Zander Vargas scored on a 13 yd run, Caleb Reichenberger a 24 yd run, and Isaac Hilt with a blocked punt resulting in a SAFETY and a 26 yd run for 6!

Passing, Ledbetter was 5/13 for 96 yds. DeAndre Washington had "3" receptions for 61 yds, Caleb Reichenberger "1" reception for 24 yds, and Trayson Probst, "1" reception for 11 yds. Probst only had to punt once at Rose Hill, a 25 yarder. 

Rushing, Zander Vargas carried the ball 19 times for 102 yds and a TD. Trace Rusk 2/30 yds and a TD. Ledbetter 11/21 yds and 2 TD's, Caleb Reichenberger 3/25 yds and a TD, Trystan Johnson 5/10 yds and James Hogg 2/-1 yd.
