Crusaders bury Bainbridge 56-10 in postponed football game

Eastside Catholic built a double-digit halftime lead and then swept the Spartans with a tsunami of touchdowns in the third quarter to beat Bainbridge 56-10 in football Saturday.

The game was first planned for Friday, but was postponed a day after an online threat was made against nearby Skyline High and officials at Eastside Catholic canceled classes Friday and conducted a security check at the school.

The undefeated Crusaders took the advantage early in the Metro League matchup. Eastside Catholic scored two touchdowns in the first, and led 14-3.

The Spartans' sole score in the first came from a 39-yard field goal by Sam Kallas.

Eastside Catholic scored two more touchdowns in the second quarter and led 30-3 at the break.

The Crusaders then unloaded for another 26 points in the third.

The Spartans put seven on the board after Kallas scooped up a fumble and rumbled 22 yards for the score. He then kicked the PAT.

The stats for Bainbridge reflect the tough night for the Spartans, which was made worse by multiple penalties.

Bainbridge finished with just 44 yards of rushing on 27 carries, and the passing attack yielded just 75 years.

Ben Kussie had seven carries for 63 yards, and Max Wysong had seven carries for 10 yards.

Spartan quarterback Paimon Jaberia went 5-for-13 in passing for 66 yards, while Kyle Jackson had one toss for nine yards.

Nich Bierly had one reception for 23 yards, while fellow Spartan Alex Coplan had two catches for 22 yards.

On defense, Kallas collected 12 unassisted tackles. Bierly and Dan Drewry had five unassisted tackles each, while Zander Silverman added four. Ryan Comstock, Jay Terry and Taylor While each added three unassisted tackles.
