VIRGINIA BEACH (WAVY)- Bishop Sullivan Catholic not only survived their first major test of the season, they were dominant. The Crusaders (3-0) erased a 7-0 first-quarter deficit, putting up 37 points in the second quarter, and rolled over visiting Gilman 50-7 Saturday evening,
Gilman (2-1), who finished last season ranked as the 13th best team in the nation, won their first two games by a combined 74-19 and capitalized off an early Crusaders turnover, scoring a touchdown on their first offensive drive of the game. The Crusaders’ defense woke up after that.
Dante Burke intercepted a Gilman pass and returned it almost 70 yards for a touchdown. Gilman had a chance to take the lead again off a short field goal, but they missed, and Bishop Sullivan took advantage. With the Crusaders inside their own 20-yard line, All-American running back Khalan Laborn found a hole and sprinted all the way to the endzone.
The avalanche continued from there, and the Crusaders went on to an easy win.
