Faith Lutheran High football players Cameron Meredith, Brenden Joyce, Christian Khoury, and Robby Schwartz before the 2015 Season.

Christian Marshall rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns for the Faith Lutheran football team, but it wasn’t enough as the Crusaders lost to visiting Yuma Catholic 48-34 today in the season opener.

“We had opportunities. We found ways to control the ball at times,” Faith Lutheran coach Vernon Fox said. “Once we got rolling offensively, we did some things well.”

Faith Lutheran cut the deficit to 41-34 on a touchdown and 2-point conversion from Elijah Kothe, who had six catches for 86 yards. But Yuma Catholic closed the scoring to take the advantage back to double digits.

“Defensively, we have a lot of things we need to work on,” Fox said.

Fox added that quarterback Brenden Joyce had some big runs, rushing for 99 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.

Yuma Catholic was led by a pair of former Bishop Gorman players. Stetson Stallworth and Wyatt Skurski both started for Yuma, and Skurski had a touchdown in the first half for a 28-17 halftime lead.
