The Langdon Area-Edmore-Munich Cardinals football team (3-0) won their first home game of the season by beating Harvey/WC (0-3) on Friday, Sept. 8 with a final score of 40-0. This is the Cardinals third game of the season with wins coming from Lisbon [39-0] and Rugby [58-0].
“Of the three teams we’ve played so far, Harvey is the best,” Head Coach Josh Krivarchka said. “We had to work a little harder tonight which is good because there was some missed assignments both on the offensive line and defensively. We can go and watch that on film and try to clean that up. They gave us a look to where we can improve.”
The Cardinals next three games will be important as they travel to play Westhope/Newburg/Glenburn (2-1) and follow-up with Bottineau (2-1) and Carrington (3-0) at home. “Carrington is kind of a circled game we got on the schedule as of right now because we know that they are going to be tough,” Krivarchka said. “We know that we need to keep improving and get better each week.”
With big wins so far this year, the Cardinals continue to work hard and stay motivated knowing that the season will continue to get tough. The Cardinals finished last year 9-2 with one of their losses to State Champion, Ellendale-Edgeley-Kulm, in the semifinals of the North Dakota Class 1A high school playoffs. “I think that there is still a lot of hunger from last year,” Krivarchka said. “There was kind of a sour taste after that defeat so I think that we are hungry.”
“We take it week by week and Coach sets up for each week. We have a game plan. He makes it as a challenge for each week that the team will be better and that makes us strive to be better.” - Chase Peebles , Cardinals running back, scores one of his three touchdowns in the first half of Friday’s game.
“We just got to keep getting better and know that the games are going to be getting harder. We just like to see points on the scoreboard no matters who’s getting them. The (offensive) line’s been huge this year; that’s the only reason we get our skill guys to make plays and put points on the scoreboard.” - Jacob Delvo , Cardinals Quarterback/Defensive Back, makes an interception in Friday’s 40-0 win over Harvey/WC.
