The Crusaders hung on to beat Legacy 22-19 on Friday night, handing the Longhorns their first loss of the season.

Gronauer completed 9-of-23 for 126 yards in the win.

Running back Christian Marshall led the way for Faith Lutheran, carrying the ball 14 times for 142 yards. Junior back Saundre Spiller punched in two touchdowns on the ground.

Josh Hong came up big with two interceptions off Legacy’s Roberto Valenzuela.

After struggling to a 1-3 start to the season the Crusaders are now riding a two-game winning streak and take on Cimarron-Memorial next Friday.

Legacy running back Sam Turner ran for 308 yards and one touchdown in the loss.
