Bapst Blanks Oceanside [SCORES]
On a cold and blustery night for playoff football, the John Bapst Crusaders blanked Oceanside 14-0 to advance to the semi-final round in Class C North.
After a scoreless first quarter that was filled with turnovers by both teams, Bapst got on the scoreboard in the second quarter. An Oceanside fumble gave the Crusaders a short field and senior running back Quinn Mitchell punched it in from three yards out to make it 7-0.
Bapst scored the second touchdown at the 10 minute mark of the fourth quarter. QB Wilson Higgins connected with Rhett McDonald on a 20 yard TD pass play. It was the 17th TD pass for Higgins and the 12th TD catch for McDonald.
The (7-2) Crusaders will meet the MCI Huskies in the semi-final round.
Oceanside finishes the season at 4-5.
