Cardinals’ Defense Clamps Ducks


Led by 178 yards of total offense from quarterback Payton Sickles, and a strong defensive effort, the Winlock football team blanked Toutle Lake Friday night at home, 30-0. 

It was an uncharacteristically defensive-minded game Friday night in 8-man ball, as the Cardinals (1-0) led by just six at the break. But thanks to two more touchdowns for Sickles, who finished with three on the night, and another from James Cusson, the Cards prevailed. 

Winlock held Toutle Lake, of the 2B Southwest Washington league, to just 12 yards of total offense on the night. 

The Cardinals will look to keep it rolling against Concrete on the road next Saturday.
