In six years this matchup has become one of the best in the State, meeting 12 times in that span. The Pipestone Area Arrows again traveled to Redwood Falls to take on the Cardinals for a solid Section 3AA tilt which again was an exciting matchup. The first half was tight, a turnover for both teams on each first drive turned into three straight scoring drives back to another defensive chess match. The Cardinals again stayed strong in the second half with a late score and defense holding strong to keep the Arrows from coming back. Here is the scoring recap here:

2nd Quarter:

RV: Alex Lang- 19 yard pass to Carter Peterson, 2-pt No Good, 6-0 RV.

PAS: Maddox Biever- 6 yard rush, PAT Good, 7-6 PAS.

RV: Alex Lang- 2 yard rush, 2-pt No Good, 12-7 RV.

4th Quarter:
