The visitors got 278 yards rushing and three touchdowns from running back Donavyn Lester to lead to the victory.

After a 14-14 first-quarter tie, the Cardinals put up 16 points to take a 30-14 halftime lead.

The Cardinals then took control in the second half to make it a 48-22 score going into the final period.

Brook Hill quarterback Khalan Griffin had a great game with 116 yards on 16 carries and two scores. Griffin also threw for another 120 yards, going 7-for-14 and one TD pass to Garrett Davis, who caught four passes for 90 yards and the TD in the loss.

The Guard (1-1) will trek to Huntington next Friday, looking to get back in the win column. John Paul II (2-0) will entertain Dallas Christian.
