The Winlock Cardinals claimed third place in River Division standings, knocking the Wahkiakum Mules into fourth place with a 53-7 football win last Friday.

The visitors got on the scoreboard in the first minute of the high scoring first quarter.

The Mules responded with a good drive. Quartrback Gabe Moon scored on a one-yard drive and Eli Cothren kicked the extra point.

From there, it was all Winlock. The Cardinals scored on two long pass plays and returned an interception for another touchown as the game proceeded.

Quarterback Moon led the Mule offense against Winlock with 59 yards gained on 20 rushes. He completed seven of 18 passes for 70 yards, with three interceptions. Jake Leitz had two receptions for 36 yards; Chase Heagy had two for 26 yards.

The loss means the Mules start the Southwest 2B Crossovers next Friday at topped ranked, undefeated Onalaska against the Loggers, who defeated the Mules earlier this season.

"We didn't tackle very well against Winlock," commented Mule Coach Eric Hansen. "We'll have to do better against Onalaska."

The victor advances to the state playoffs; the season is over for the loser.
