SAUK RAPIDS -- Football season is back and the Sauk Rapids-Rice Storm play host to the Willmar Cardinals this evening (Friday).

Willmar would start out hot scoring on their first drive thanks to a one yard run by Mitchel Heitzman. Cardinals would complete the two point conversion.

Storms first possession would end in a field goal attempt. The kick went wide right and the Cardinals still lead 8-0.

Cardinals go on offense once again, Quarterback Augustine Hahn would find Chris Cunningham on the slant route and he would run it all the way to the end zone.

Storm would surge in the second half but fall short as the Cardinals win this game 42-30.

Sauk Rapids-Rice will hit the road next week to take on Bemidji.
