2019 SEASON OPENER
NELSON LORDS - 49
HOLY CROSS CRUSADERS - 21
After a visit to Queen's University and campus tour from the Queens Gaels Football Program the Lords got down to business on Friday night at Richardson Stadium. Nelson started slow and fell behind early to a strong Holy Cross offence. Under heavy rain most of the night the Lords offence battled back with Touchdowns from Robert de Baseggio, Keagan Hall, and James Priestner to trail the game 21-18 at the half. The Nelson defence would take a stand in the second half while the offence would continue to click and a Jackson Cooling touchdown early in the 3rd quarter put the Lords ahead for good. James Priestner and de Baseggio would both add their second majors of the night while Jake Bennett added a touchdown of his own, a field goal and two converts. Cooling would add another 2 point conversion on a broken play to round out the scoring. Defensively, the front seven were strong and DB Kees Chelin also recored an interception.
