Alexandria football: Cards fall to Brainerd in regular finale

Email News Alerts

The Alexandria football team went into last night's Section 8AAAAA playoff opener hoping to change a lot of the things that plagued this team in a 42-7 loss against Brainerd to wrap up the regular season last Wednesday.


The Cardinals got 130 yards on 16 carries from quarterback John Vogeler against the Warriors. Included in that was a 65-yard touchdown run, but too many big plays for Brainerd allowed the Warriors to run away with things in a 28-point third quarter.
