Crusader Struggles Continue
Tigerville, SC – The nightmare continued for the Crusaders as they fell to the Trojans of Mount Olive 4-1 Friday afternoon.
It took 18 minutes for the Trojans to get on the board as Edrisa Chune scored on an assist from Kevin Williams Lopez.
It would take less than five minutes for the Trojans to double their lead with Lopez getting the goal on the assist from Daouda Sanoh. The Trojans would get their last goal of the
half with just 10 seconds left on the clock as Nikoli Iotov would capitalize on the assist from Azzam Dhamra.
The second half would see a better Crusaders team as the team played more compact. The Trojans would break through the walls however, as T.J. Merrick would score an unassisted goal in the 81st minute of play.
The Crusaders would get a goal back one minute later as junior midfielder Ara Zadoorian would bury his penalty kick in the side netting away from the keeper.
This game saw the return of Zadoorian and fellow midfielder Thales Wieczorek to the side as well junior forward Asa Wolfe picking up his first start of the season after his screamer from 30 yards out last week.
The Crusaders (0-12, 0-8 Conference Carolinas) will host Lees McCrae College on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. in Pepsi Stadium.
