Cardinal Coach Jamie Gelvin commented, “We started strong and played a solid first half, but couldn’t keep it up in the second half.  We were down 13 at the half, but had 4 or 5 shots that went half way down and bounced out. The second half Shanksville come out fast and we took too long to match their intensity. Hats off to Shanksville. They are a great team. I was very proud of my teams’ effort tonight. When things got rough, they didn’t quit.  I feel for Harlie Strait who is my only senior. That girl busted her butt for me for 4 years and got better every year. We will miss her great attitude and leadership next season. ”
