Crusaders’ season ends in rematch with AC-GC

  • 0

They were more than a little upset minded going into the district final game. 

After having already dispatched the top team in their district, Ankeny Christian Academy in the round earlier, the Coon Rapids-Bayard boys basketball team had a certain swagger in their step.

Providing that extra pep in their step was the fact that Coon Rapids-Bayard had already bested AC-GC once this season. 

Tuesday night in the district final the Crusader season was ended, however. 

AC-GC was able to get revenge with a 67-42 victory over the Crusaders. 

It was a close game after the first quarter as the Crusaders only trailed by four points. In the second quarter the Chargers of AC-GC caught fire from long-range. On the night the Chargers were able to make 12 three pointers, a majority of those coming in the second quarter. 

With that fire power the Chargers were able to take control  of the game, leading by 19 at halftime. 

Although the Crusaders had been able to get within 18 points by the start of the fourth quarter the Chargers pulled away with an eventual 25-point victory. 

With that result the Crusader season ended with a 14-10  overall record. 

Freshman Cal Heydon finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Cade Behrens added 13 points with three rebounds. 

Lance Clayburg added eight points with seven rebounds. Both Omarion Floyd and Lucas Obert added two points each. 

There were only two listed seniors for the Crusaders this season. Dalton Miller and Lance Clayburg.
