The host Crusaders used a little instant offense to turn a defensive struggle on its ear Friday.

With neither side getting anything going in the first half, St. Dominic (3-1 overall, 2-0 AAA) turned in a 20-yard interception by Josh Daues and the subsequent 2-point conversion from Luke Mennemeier’s run into more than enough to win.

Tony Papa added a 4-yard run to cement the win late in the fourth quarter as St. Dominic rolled past Trinity (1-3, 0-2).

Papa’s 57 rushing yards led the Crusaders on the ground.
