Cardinal soccer team falls in shootout

The Willmar boys soccer team and Mankato West battled through regulation time and two scoreless overtime periods before the Scarlets prevailed 1-0 in a shootout in the Section 2A championship Thursday.

The Cardinals finished 14-4-2 overall while Mankato West improved to 15-4-1.

It wasn't unusual for the Scarlets to post a shutout: They entered the game with 13 this season, including a 4-0 win over Mankato East for a spot in the title game. Willmar advanced to Thursday's game with a 5-0 win over the section's top seed, Fairmont, on Tuesday.
