The Collinsville Cardinal Jr. High Football teams hosted the Oologah Mustangs Tuesday night at Sallee Field for a non-conference contest.

The 7th grade Cardinals displayed total control the entire night. With an outstanding kicking game, dominate running game, precise passing attack and smash mouth defense the Cardinals were too much for the Mustangs. Cardinals win 22-6. No injuries were reported.
The 8th grade Cardinals gave the fans plenty of entertainment. With a crushing running attack, overpowering defense and outstanding kicking game the Cardinals broke the Mustangs will to play. Cardinals win 22-0. No injuries were reported.
In the 9th grade contest the Boys of Fall proved what Cardinal Football is all about. The slugfest was just that; a typical hard hitting, smash mouth affair. The Cardinals played every down with tenacity and with just 6 seconds left in the rivalry score to win 13-12. No injuries were reported.
The Cardinals next action will be on September 11 at Claremore for the first Metro Lakes Conference game of the season. The 6A opponent will be a tough battle; so we need the Cardinal Nation to come support our teams. Games begin at 5pm.
