This time it was a complete turn around and the Crusaders barely lost by the score of 1-0 to the Kings.
"I think part of it is being on our fifth game instead of our first," said Coach DeLaBruere, "The first game we came out we played a little scared. We were reacting to the ball instead of playing our game. This game we came out ready to play."
