Sept. 22, 2016 Salem, OR – The Salem Academy Crusaders are having a difficult season start.  It’s not that they don’t have the talent, it just seems that can’t put together a complete game.  This was relevant as they hosted the Taft Tigers.  The Crusades had glimmers of great play but it wasn’t enough as they fell to the Tigers 5-3.

In this game, Taft was a quiet scoring team.  When you least expect it, they attack and then the next thing you know, gooooooooooal!

With the loss, Salem Academy is now 1-6 overall and sitting near the bottom of the  3A/2A/1A.  The only team below them is Gervais who are 0-6.

Taft is now 3-3 overall and at the middle of the pack.
