The Warriors led 14-11 at the first stop and 27-25 at intermission, but the Crusaders outscored the Warriors 18-8 in the third quarter to lead 45-33 going in to the final period. The Crusaders went up by 14 points, but the Warriors came racing back to cut it to three points.

“I can’t fault our team. I’m so proud of the effort they gave and never quit,” WMC coach Jim Goorman said.

“We did it with two of our starters (Bernard Smith and John Waller fouled out) sitting on the bench.”
