COTTONDALE | Tuscaloosa Christian scored the first points of the game on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Potter to Andrew Mason, but it was all downhill from then on as the Warriors fell to Kingsway Christian, 66-25.
After the Warrior touchdown, Kingsway went on a 30-0 run to take command of the game on Friday night. The game turned when the Crusaders had a 14-7 lead and recovered a fumble on a kickoff late in the first quarter. Quarterback Morgan Reed found Landon Foster for a 39-yard touchdown that led to a 22-7 advantage after one quarter of play.
“They are a very good team and we made a lot of errors,” Tuscaloosa Christian coach Hunter Christian said. “We had five turnovers that I remember that they converted for scores. You can’t win turning the ball over like that.”
Gabe Foster added one of the highlights of the night for Tuscaloosa Christian (2-2) as he returned a kickoff 70-yards for a touchdown to cut the deficit to 30-13. Freedom Woods scored on a 3-yard rush early in the second half.
The Crusaders (4-0) had an 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Joshua Heath and a 39-yard fumble return for a score by Trevor McSpadden to highlight the scoring. They were able to take a 52-13 lead into the locker room at halftime.
Reed scored five touchdowns for Kingsway. He threw for four touchdowns and added on rushing score.
“We really need to focus on our decision-making,” Christian continued. “Some of the decisions made by our older players were just not the right ones and we need to work on composure.”
With 28.5 seconds to play in the game, Potter connected with Calloway Newman on a 34-yard touchdown pass to cap off the scoring.
Tuscaloosa Christian will play on the road against Flint Hill next Friday night.
