Kruse Directs Calvary Chapel's 28-14 Victory Over Army-Navy

Quarterback Waylan Kruse ran for two touchdowns and threw for one to lead Calvary Chapel to a 28-14 victory over Carlsbad Army-Navy Academy Friday at Orange Coast College.

Kruse scored both of his rushing touchdowns on one-yard quarterback sneaks, but was most impressive passing. The sophomore quarterback connected on six of 12 passes for 127 yards, highlighted by a 55-yard strike to wideout Sabe Younger on the first half's final play. Younger caught four passes for 101 yards.

Army-Navy (0-1) quarterback Stewart Strothers, who finished with 82 yards rushing and 75 yards passing, scored on a six-yard run in the second quarter, and teamed up with Ron Allen for a 72-yard score in the third quarter.

Two snaps over punter Tony Fiore's head cost Army-Navy a safety and a touchdown.

Matt Kellogg led the Eagles' rushing attack, carrying the ball 14 times for a game-high 84 yards.
