Fullington added a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the game, closing the lead to 21-19. They went for the two-point conversion to tie the game, but the RTCA defense kept them out to preserve the 21-19 lead with just over six minutes left in the game.

The Crusaders did a good job of keeping the Trojans out of the end zone of the remainders of the game to take their first win of the season, 21-19. RTCA did have one other opportunity to score as they had the ball fourth-and-goal at the Fullington 2-yard line, but they were stopped and turned it over on downs.

RTCA is now 1-6 on the season. This week the Crusaders will travel to Brentwood Academy in Sandersville with kickoff at 7:30 p.m.
