Email News Alerts

The Cardinal football team showed off the same resolve that helped it turn around its season in the final three weeks but could not overcome a talented Rocori team in a 25-20 loss in the section semifinals on Saturday.


The Spartans came in rested and ready to go after earning a bye in the opening round. Running back Sam Moriarty got Rocori off to a fast start with a seven-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The Spartans went on to take a 19-0 lead into the fourth quarter.
