Prep football: Willmar survives a third quarter Storm


SAUK RAPIDS — The Willmar Cardinals made it look easy jumping to a 36-0 lead but then watched it dwindle to 36-30 by the end of the third quarter.

It took a Tyler Stegeman pick-six to quiet the Storm in the fourth quarter and preserve a 42-30 Central Lakes win at Sauk Rapids on Friday night.
