Like the inevitability of death and taxes, the Webb City Cardinals are going to run the football on offense and they're going to play great defense.
"Great programs win with superior fundamentals and superior talent," Helias coach Chris Hentges said Sunday as the Crusaders (7-4, ranked No. 8) prepared to host the Cardinals (11-0, No. 2) in a Class 4 sectional game tonight at Adkins Stadium. "They've got the fundamentals down in all facets of the game."
Game time is 7 p.m.
