Crusaders are having an excellent year at 7-2 with 2 losses by a combined 5 points to Aquinas and Cardinal Mooney. Defense is awesome led by Sharpe Wheatley, Zaffram, and Richards having only allowed 36 points in 9 games and only 1 touchdown by the starting defense. Offense has been sparked by the "Q" express. Loss of Adam DiMillo to injury for the season hurt the Tigers big time, only averaging 15.1 points while allowing 24.1 points. Crusaders shutout the Tigers 24-0 in the regular season and should dominate in the rematch.
Prediction: Canisius, 30 - Tigers 6
