Crusaders fall to Friars in final seconds
Like objects of a prom queen’s scorn, Brother Rice has experienced plenty of heartbreak during the 2013 football season.
One last bout of it was delivered to the Crusaders Saturday afternoon at Joe Johnston Field. Seeing its first action in three weeks by hosting Fenwick in a Chicago Catholic League semifinal playoff game, Rice was more rested than rusty as it jumped out to a 14-0 halftime lead.
But then an old bugaboo cropped up, and three second-half turnovers proved too much to overcome.
