Turnovers killed Faith Lutheran in its first game against top-notch competition.
After falling behind early, the Crusaders turned the ball over three times inside their own 20-yard-line and Legacy made them pay, punching it in each time and winning 39-6.
Quarterback Devin Wiedemann connected for touchdowns on each of his three completions, and running back DeShae Edwards rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns.
“We were a little sloppy offensively still,” Legacy coach David Snyder said. “Still, we got the job done.”
Joe Portaro connected with Don Pearson in the third quarter for Faith Lutheran’s only touchdown of the game.
“Our kids played hard, made some mistakes and we’ll fix those,” Faith Lutheran coach Jacob Kothe said. “We feel if you take those turnovers back, it’s a whole different ball game
