Christian Marshall ran for 208 yards and four touchdowns, and Faith Lutheran shook off a slow start to rout Bonanza 43-6 in the 4A Sunset Quarterfinal matchup Thursday night.

Marshall scored twice in the first quarter to put the Crusaders up 13-0, but Faith Lutheran struggled in the second quarter and led the Bengals by the same score at the half.

Quarterback Sagan Gronauer completed 12-of-21 passes for 149 yards, one touchdown and an interception.

Elijah Kothe led the Crusaders in receiving with four catches for 55 yards and a touchdown.

The loss snaps a four-game winning streak for Bonanza and ends their Cinderella run.

The Crusaders will take on the No. 1 team in the country next Friday in the Bishop Gorman Gaels in the 4A Sunset Regional Semifinal.
