WILLMAR -- The Brainerd Warriors scored 26 straight points in the first half and went on to beat the Willmar Cardinals 32-18 on a damp Friday night at Hodapp Field.

The outcome is hardly a surprise. Brainerd (2-0) rolled to its eighth straight victory over the Cardinals, though this was perhaps the most competitive.
