Bainbridge defeats Salisbury; now 3-0 on year

Alex Crane scored two rushing touchdowns and added a third on a kickoff return as the Bainbridge Spartans defeated the Salisbury Sabres 41-18 in a torrential downpour Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

With a raucous student section chanting "USA!" for much of the night, Crane took advantage of some wide open holes to race for scores of 69 yards and 66 yards. He also took a kickoff back 90 yards just before the half.

"I talked to the offensive line a few days ago - I told them, since I haven't been running as well, that I was going to make it up to them," Crane said. "So, dinner's on me."

Quarterback Carson Zajonic opened the scoring with a 18 yard pass to Chris Bell.

Zajonic also had big completions of 41 yards to Henry Indivik to set up a rushing score by Corey Touchette and 71 yards to Touchette to set up another rushing touchdown by Nick Miller in the third quarter.

The Sabres' biggest play came in the first quarter when Ben Brisson threw to Zach Bosch for a 56-yard touchdown strike.

"I'm very proud of them," head coach Andy Grimm said. "They did a great job in crappy weather. I thought Alex Crane came to play and ran real well tonight. It's a good confidence builder for him."

The Spartans (3-0) host Bishop Blanchet (1-2) next Friday at 7 p.m. at Memorial Stadium for Homecoming and to open Metro League play.
