ORCHARD PARK, NY - This year's Monsignor Martin title game was more than just a championship, it was a chance at payback. Canisius beat St. Francis 31-20 this year after losing to the Red Raiders 42-7 a year ago.
This is Canisius' fourth Monsignor Martin title in five seasons and the Crusaders did it thanks to a huge fourth quarter performance.
Canisius took just a 10-6 lead into the final period and outscored the Red Raiders 21-14 in the fourth.
The Crusaders now look to win their second state championship in three years.
