Prep football: Elks stampede Cardinals
WILLMAR -- If this is the 5A football playoffs ... uff da!!
Bumped up the big-school level just below the new Super 32, the Cardinals got mugged on their own field Tuesday night.
Feeling frisky after grinding through a 6A schedule, the Elk River Elks overpowered Willmar 51-28 at Hodapp Field with perhaps 700 on hand.
The Elks (4-5) led 30-7 by intermission and 44-7 after three periods of the Section 6-5A quarterfinal.
