Boys soccer: Willmar, Minn., loss is its 4th straight


WILLMAR -- On a warm and still Thursday evening, it was still another agonizing loss for the Cardinals in boys soccer -- their fourth in a row and third straight by a goal.

The Sartell Sabres got a penalty kick early in the second half to defeat Willmar 1-0 on Kennedy field as the sun ducked behind the nearby football stadium.

Goal shots were even at seven apiece. The Sabres (6-2-1, 7-5-1) also whitewashed the Cardinals in Sartell, 3-0.
