The Faith Lutheran football team surrendered 40 first-half points against visiting Mountain Pointe of Arizona in a 40-17 defeat.
“It was a lack of execution on our part,” Faith Lutheran coach Vernon Fox said. “Our boys fought until the end. But when you play a team of that caliber, you can’t make the kind of mistakes that we did.”
Grant Wood had a 21-yard touchdown pass to Gavin Steck for the Crusaders, while Marcos Canales added a short touchdown run. Alex Khachoyan booted a 24-yard field goal.
Faith Lutheran struggled to move the ball early, Fox said. It had just 154 total yards.
