Girls soccer: Brainerd crumbles Cards
WILLMAR -- Coming off a tie at St. Cloud Tech on Tuesday in which they played some of their best soccer of the season, the Willmar Cardinals were cooled off by Brainerd 5-0 on Thursday in Central Lakes girls soccer at Kennedy Field.
"We had a fabulous game at Tech but we had nothing left today," said coach Chelsea Brown. "But Brainerd is a very good team and has always been a tough opponent for us."
Several Cardinals also have the flu, she said, and defender Abygayl Nevarez went out with a dislocated shoulder that will keep her sidelined at least one week.
