In Friday's league game, the St. Mary's Cardinals smashed the host Niobrara/Verdigre Cougars, by a score of 54-0.
The Cardinals scored 30 points in the first quarter. The first scores came when Gage Hedstrom threw a 30 yard pass to Issac Everitt, but the two-point conversion was no good. The second score had Hedstrom again passing a 30 yard pass to Everitt, followed by a run in by Everitt for the two-point conversion. Next Hedstrom had a one yard run in for a touchdown and Dalton Alder ran the two-point conversion in. The final score of the quarter came with another 10 yard pass from Hedstrom to Everitt, followed by Hedstrom running in the two-point conversion.
The second quarter saw an 11 yard pass from Hedstrom to Carson Dannenbring, but the two-point conversion was no good. The second score of the quarter came with a 40 yard run by Alder, but they couldn't pull off the two-point conversion. The final score of the half was made with a 44 yard pass from Hedstrom to Jace Rosenkrans, but again the two-point conversion was no good, leaving the score at half-time 48-0.
The Cougars managed to hold the Cardinals scoreless in the third quarter and only allowed one score in the final quarter when Hedstrom threw 20 yards to Rosenkrans, but the extra point was no good.
