The Bengals wrestled to very lofty results with both state qualifiers placing among the best in the state. Sophomore Malik Stewart lost his section final rematch in the 120-pound state championship to St. Michael-Albertville’s Michael McKee.
Blaine won its third straight game and posted a season-high points total in a 42-20 win at Centennial Oct. 11. The Bengals (5-2) have things going the right direction after back-to-back losses to good Osseo and Maple Grove programs in weeks three and four.
Blaine put two losses behind them while spoiling Coon Rapids’ homecoming game 41-14, Sept. 27. Cardinals Stadium was hoping with a rabid student section proud to share their Cardinal Nation pride throughout the deceptively one-side score.
