The teams go into the half with a 21-7 lead behind McLeod’s 64 yards on 21 carries, Fodor’s solid game management, and a stiff defense that contributed a touchdown to the scoring. That defense has allowed the Crusaders 176 yards on offense but have been stingy in terms of points. The Crusader offense came into the contest averaging close to 35 points per game so the Eli defense has done its job.
