CINCINNATI – Shaun Crawford’s outstanding October continued Saturday against two-time defending State Champion Archbishop Moeller, leading St. Edward to a 24-10 road win.

The Notre Dame commit took a handoff from Eagles’ quarterback Brett Kean on the first play from scrimmage and raced 80-yards untouched into the end zone, giving the Eagles a lead they would not relinquish.

The Eagles and Crusaders traded field goals, before Matt Carandang made the play of the game, intercepting Moeller quarterback Matt Crable and returning it 32-yards to put St. Edward on top 17-3.

Andrew Dowell added a short touchdown run just before halftime and the Eagles led 24-3 at the intermission.

Crable threw a touchdown pass late in the 4th quarter, but it was too little, too late.

St. Edward (7-2) has now won four straight games since a midseason hiccup took the Eagles from the No. 1 ranked team in the country, to fighting for a playoff berth in Region 1.

St. Edward closes out the regular season next Saturday against arch-rival St. Ignatius (6-3), which also played in Cincinnati Saturday, falling to St. Xavier 24-10.

Both the Eagles and the Wildcats have clinched Playoff spots.

Whoever wins the 53rd edition of the ‘Holy War’ can lock up a home game in the opening round.
