ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.- All season long the Crusaders have overpowered opponents with an explosive offense, the same was true in a 44-20 thrashing of St. Francis in the Monsignor Martin semi-finals.
From the get-go, Canisius showed why it's one of the best teams in Western New York. The Crusaders forced a fumble on St. Francis' first possession. Ensuing drive, Qadree Ollison takes the ball 81 yards for the first score of the game. Canisius never looked back.
The Crusaders improved to 9-0 thanks to an impressive rushing attack including Ollison (2 rushing TDs) and quarterback Tyler Mascio (2 rushing TDs, 1 passing TD).
Canisius will face Bishop Timon-St. Jude in the Monsignor Martin title on Saturday, Nov. 17.
