On homecoming night, the Chippewa Falls Cardinals (4-2, 3-1 Big Rivers Conference) got the job done against the visiting Wildcats (1-5, 0-4 BRC) and put themselves one win away from a second consecutive playoff appearance.
WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch: Defensively, seniors Simon Martineau and Cale Hannusch were once again impressive. Fellow senior Evan Spaeth forced a fumble and played blanket coverage.
On offense, all three running backs (juniors Codie Meinen and Matt Bruder, and sophomore Matt Pomietlo) scored, leading the way for a balanced Cardinals attack. Bruder found the end zone three times, and leads the team with 11 touchdowns.
