|Daniel Malon was an honorary captain Friday (along with Spencer Oslin, Carson Stout, Hayden West and Nate Sinni) and tossed the coin.|
|Although "The Trap" appears to be offering a toast with their "drinks", it is actually cups of pink powder preparing for the student section toss at the opening kickoff.|
|Jake Tuttle (#21) is off on a long run in the Cardinal's first possession (from the Collinsville 40 all the way down to the Memorial 13) but Collinsville fumbled the ball to Memorial 2 plays later. Memorial had kicked a field goal on the game's first possession. Collinsville's 2nd possession also ended with a fumble.|
|Jake Tuttle (#21) finally got Collinsville on the scoreboard with 12 seconds left in the first quarter. Jake carried the final 14 yards and after Ashton Jones' PAT kick the Cards were on top 7-3.|
|Malcom Tillman is getting ready to take the handoff from Carson Stout and rush 18 yards for Collinsville's second score with 8:56 left in the 2nd quarter. Aston Jones' extra point made the score 14-3.|
Cardinal defender appeared to line up and take a number for this Memorial stop.
|Following a blocked Collinsville punt, Memorial had the ball knocked loose by Carter Lowe (#25) and recovered by Kenlee Hall (#42) about 2 minutes before the half.|
|The Collinsville QB Club has been working on several fundraisers (including selling pink shirts) and handed the Malon family a check for more than $7,000 and also passed the bucket at this game for another $1000. All to help with on-going medical expenses for Daniel's cancer treatments.|
The elementary and middle school cheerleaders performed their routine at halftime.
|The Collinsville Crimson Cadet band will be at OBA Saturday (at Yukon) then BOA (at St. Louis) next week during fall break, performing their "Wild" (west) marching routine.|

|Malcom Tillman (#24) takes the handoff from Carson Stout (#2) on his way to the one yard line , and scored on the next play with 3:13 left in the 3rd quarter.|
Ashton Jones (#20) kicked all the extra points (this one to make it 21-3).
|With under two minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Hayden West (#33) fielded a short Memorial punt near the 35 yard line and met very little resistance to his left on his way to the endzone and another Cardinal touchdown. The extra point kick made the score 28-3.|

|The CHS cheerleaders took turns doing 35 flips to match the Collinsville points on the scoreboard.|
|Payton Russell (#36) scooped up a Memorial fumble and returned it Memorial's 22 yard line with about 5 minutes left in the game. Collinsville later fumbled it back at the six yard line and Memorial connected on a 92 yard pass play for the final 35-10 score.|
