Moorhead 28, Alexandria 12

The Alexandria football team moved the ball pretty well in the season opener against Moorhead, but it was the Spuds who came away with a 28-12 win after scoring in all four quarters.


The Cardinals opened things up with a 76-yard touchdown run by senior quarterback John Vogeler on their second play of the game. Moorhead responded with the next two touchdowns before the half and took a 14-6 lead into the break.
