Football

The Cards kicked off the season with their annual Red & White scrimmage on the 4th. They followed up that intersquad scrimmage with another scrimmage, this time against Decatur Central on the 11th.


Both of those geared the guys up to go to battle on the 18th against southside rival and defending 4A champion Roncalli. The Cardinals came out hot in the first series as a pass from Ed Schott to RaShawn Haskins moved the Cardinals into the red zone. Southport put the first points on the board with a field goal from the leg of Hunter Cocherell. Roncalli got things moving on the ground. Coupled with a Cardinal turnover and the Rebels took a 14-3 lead the half. Another touchdown in the second half pushed the score to 21-3.


The Cardinals flocked downtown to Lucas Oil Stadium to take on defending 5A champion Westfield. The team had things going in the first half in all three phases. Two connections from Schott to Haskins put the Cardinals up 14-0 at half. Gabe Collins-Green had an interception and a recovered fumble. In the second half, the Cards found themselves a dogfight. Westfield prevailed in this close game by a touchdown, 21-14.
