10/7/22 Football: Chi-Hi 28, Eau Claire Memorial 20

On the road at Carson Park for the first time in several seasons, the Chippewa Falls Cardinals (6-2, 4-2 Big Rivers Conference) looked to spoil homecoming night for the Old Abes (3-5, 1-5  BRC), in front of a festive crowd in Eau Claire.

The Cards got off to their best start of the season with two first quarter touchdowns, but collectively shot themselves in the foot with two turnovers and a fortuitous tipped pass that led to a pair of Memorial scores.

With the Carson crowd in full throat after the Old Abes knotted the game at 14, Chi-Hi calmly put the clamps down on the contest, controlling the ball and scoring 14 points in a row to take a lead they would never relinquish. 

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Senior RB Mason Howard was elusive as ever, racking up nearly 90 rushing yards and two scores for a Cardinal running game that amassed 233 yards on the ground. As a group, the Chi-Hi offensive front set the tone early, creating a consistent push and winning the majority of the battles in the trenches.
