In Crossover, WashU Dismantles North Park

Washington University’s Contra took North Park University’s Lost Boys to task in the second half of Free State Classic’s crossover round, soundly defeating them, 15-8.

The first half was relatively a back and forth affair that saw Contra take advantage half at 8-6.

The second half started out relatively calm and neither team made a turnover for the first four points of the game. With the score at 10-8, Washington made the first turnover of the half, but quickly got it back to make it 11-8. Then Washington and North Park got into a turnover fest, with seven combined, and Washington came out on top 12-8.

From there Contra was able to get a pair of d’s and some North Park miscommunication to finish off the game on a 5-0 run.

“We were able to stay up in the beginning and in the second half we really turned it on,” said Washington captain Luke Ding.
