The 11-year-old Hicksville Crusaders opened their season against the Bellmore Braves. Hicksville won the coin toss and after receiving the kickoff the offense took the field with the end zone being the focus; it didn’t take long for Luke Walker to score the Crusaders’ first touchdown of the season.
Last week’s practice proved to be very interesting for the 10-year-old Hicksville Crusaders because they had to prepare for a team that they have never seen before and knew very little about.
