Wellington's freshman football team might become a nemesis of Augusta's. The Crusaders defeated the Orioles 16-6 this week at Hillier Stadium.
Wellington scored first on a long drive capped by a rushing touchdown and a two-point conversion in the second quarter. In the third quarter, Chandler Nusz scored a 13-yard touchdown, but the conversion failed. Wellington salted away the game with another methodical drive that ended with a rushing touchdown.
The Orioles (1-2) will play at Clearwater Monday, Sept. 24.
