Email News Alerts

The Alexandria football team took its first step toward trying to turn around its season on Saturday as the Cardinals ran away from St. Cloud Apollo late in a 26-0 win on homecoming.


Alexandria's defense created six turnovers on five interceptions and a fumble recovery. Four of those picks came in the fourth quarter as the Cardinals opened up what was a 6-0 game after three periods. It was a win this team admitted it had to have in front of a packed crowd at Citizens' Field.
