The Cardinals were to entertain Carrington for their Homecoming game and Senior Night on October 11, but a possible early winter storm may force that game to be pushed back to Monday. With a win over Carrington, the Cards could clinch the top spot in Region 2A for the upcoming playoffs which begin October 26. Langdon-Edmore-Munich will close out their regular season at Grafton on October 19 with a kickoff set for 1:00 p.m.

All facets of the Cardinals offense were on display against Bottineau. Things got rolling in the fi rst quarter with a touchdown pass from Simon Romfo to Jackson Delvo and snowballed from there. The Cards had a strong wind at their back for the opening quarter of play, and with their defense stone walling the Braves, Bottineau had several short punts into the wind that gave Langdon- Edmore-Munich excellent fi eld position.

Sean Gette would score next on an end around, followed by a tight end screen pass to Cooper Zimmer for another TD. Grant Romfo would get into the scoring act with an 11 yard run then another touchdown pass from Simon Romfo to Delvo. Simon Romfo would close out the quarter with a 30 yard run for pay dirt as the clock ran out. Gette would catch another long pass from Romfo to score again in the second quarter, giving Simon 20 touchdown passes on the season. After that play early in the second, the Cards turned things over to their JV team, who would keep up the scoring. Sophomore Zach Rostvet had a bruising 77 yard scamper, running over two Braves defenders on the way to the goal line. Rostvet also caught an 18 yard pass from Gage Goodman to cap the scoring. Defensively the Cardinals had their fi rst complete game shutout of the season. Senior Jesse Fetsch started at linebacker for the fi rst time this season and had a number of tackles and one of three quarterback sacks. They held the Braves to just 42 yards passing and to minus fi ve yards rushing.
