North Jersey Record Published 3:38 PM EDT Oct 13, 2018 Bergen Catholic staged a second-half comeback last week to get a big win over St. Joseph, but the Crusaders appeared to have an emotional letdown on Saturday. The team escaped winless Pope John 14-6, overcoming a rash of turnovers and some good fortune for the Lions. Anthony Corbin punched it in from three yards out in the first half and Andrew Boel scored on a one-yard keeper in the second half for Bergen Catholic, but the rest of the game was a struggle for the offense. Bergen Catholic threw two interceptions in the red zone in the first half, and added two fumbles in opposing territory in the second half to keep Pope John alive. The Lions only real offense came off of a big special teams play, as Bergen Catholic partially blocked Pope John’s punt, but a Lions player caught it on the fly behind the line of scrimmage and advanced it into Crusaders territory. Pope John would later score, but the extra point was blocked. Pope John had several chances to drive for a tying score, but it was stopped late in the game on fourth down. This allowed Bergen Catholic to run out the clock for the win. The Crusaders, now 6-1, will get a chance to rebound next week against Paramus Catholic.
