16 Nov Cardinals Move On
They say you have to play all 4 quarters, on Friday the Pottsboro Cardinals dominated in 3 of the 4 quarters and that was plenty as the Cards beat Bowie 30-8 in a Bi-District 2A DI playoff game. Pottsboro scored on their first 2 possesions and led 24-0 at halftime before coasting to the victory. Chris Delacruz had a 1 yard td and both Pottsboro quarterbacks threw a touchdown pass as Pottsboro improved to 10-1 on the season. Bowie ends their season at 4-7 and made it interesting in the 3rd period, out gaining Pottsboro 154 to 27 but the Cardinals defense got 2 4th down stops and Patton Lyons added a 66 yard td run in the 4th quarter for Pottsboro. The stats looked like this:
Total yards Pottsboro 309 Bowie 185

The Cardinals advance to the Area round of the playoffs for the 4th consecutive year and will meet Redwater a 27-7 winner over Winnsboro, the time and location to be determined.
