VICKSBURG, Mich -- After a remarkable come from behind victory over Oakridge last week, Unity Christian traveled to Vicksburg to meet Kalamazoo United in the regional championship. In the second quarter, Isaac Teslaa would find Caleb Heyboer for the 51-yard touchdown strike as the Crusaders jumped out to a 20 point lead. United would respond through the air as Eric Wenzel connected with Heath Baldwin for a 38-yard touchdown.
