The Alexandria football team headed into halftime down 14-10 to Brainerd, but second half mistakes hurt them in a 42-10 loss on the road last Friday.


Mike Empting said before the game that the team who can limit the turnovers would have the best chance of coming out of the game with a win. But the Cardinals struggled with that again on Friday.

"We struggled with putting the ball on the ground, bad snaps and field position," Empting said.
