We are past the halfway point of the high school football regular season - time flies when you are having fun!

The Storm took down St. Francis 16-7 last week on the road to remain undefeated, while Elk River lost a wild game at Andover by a 63-56 final score.
SARTELL (0-4) @ BEMIDJI (2-2)
The Sabres' struggle to find the end zone continued last week with a 41-6 loss at Bemidji. Sartell has scored 19 points in four games this season, granted those four games were all against quality opponents.
