Cardinals triumph over numbers but fall in playoffs
October 25, 2019
Playing with a roster of just 12 players all season, somehow Cromwell-Wright not only finished the season, but gave Hill City/Northland a scare in a 30-20 road loss on Tuesday in the opening round of the Section 5 nine-man football tournament.
The Cardinals trailed 22-20 at halftime. Despite trailing, they appeared to be the team controlling the line of scrimmage.
“At halftime I felt like we controlled the first half but were down two because we gave up big plays,” said Cards coach Jeff Gronner. “We gave up one long run, one long screen pass, and a kickoff return.”
