PASADENA — Marshall Fundamental football coach Johnny Lopez could not hide the frustration on his face as the seconds ticked away Thursday night. Not only had his Eagles been soundly thumped, 51-19, at the hands of the visiting Village Christian Crusaders, but Marshall (1-3) missed out on its opportunity to get back to .500 before league play begins next week. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Village Christian trailed Marshall 13-8 in the first quarter, before scoring 28 unanswered points. It wasn’t until the final drive of the game, when the clock wound out, that the Eagles stopped the Crusaders. “We started out a bit slow,” Village Christian coach Marty Martin said. “But we were able to pick it up and actually have a pretty balanced attack. That’s what we’ve been trying to do.” The Crusaders (3-2) received solid efforts all around, especially from quarterback Rex Reinhard. The sophomore was 7 for 8 passing for 125 yards and two touchdowns. After Marshall had pulled to within 16 points, Reinhard’s 54-yard third-quarter strike to running back Christopher Handy seemed to break the Eagles’ will. “We’re just going to need to practice harder,” said Marshall quarterback Randall Rivers. “The defense needs to improve, the offense needs to improve. Man, everybody needs to improve.” It seemed early that Rivers and the Eagles would be involved in a high-scoring affair. Marshall opened the scoring early when Rivers hooked up with junior wide receiver Shawn Benn on a 47-yard touchdown pass. After a quick Crusaders score, Rivers connected with another receiver, senior John Butler, deep downfield for a 50-yard touchdown. Unfortunately for the Eagles, they wouldn’t score again until the game was out of hand. “We’re going to have nine days until our next game, when we open league play against Kilpatrick,” Lopez said. “Until then, we’re going to have to put this game out of our heads. Life goes on and we’ve just got to move on to our next game. But it can be frustrating.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
