ZEPHYRHILLS – The ZCA Warriors fell behind early Tuesday night to the Crusaders of Tampa Catholic and never could quite catch up.

The Warriors could only muster 2 goals in the final 2 periods while Tampa Catholic added six to their first half totals for the 14-7 final.
Zephyrhills Christian will face the Wiregrass Ranch Bulls on the road at the Ranch next Tuesday night, while the Crusaders travel to St. Pete to play Admiral Farragut on Friday the 22nd.
