St Mary’s caps off regular season Friday against ORR

In a down season for the Dell Rapids St Mary’s Cardinals football team, there have been some bright spots. The Cardinals narrowly fell last week against Elkton-Lake Benton 28-20 with a largely young roster that has scored 15 points per game.

St Mary’s has leaned on sophomore quarterback Conor Libis to guide the rebuilding offense along with lone senior Ethan Geraets carrying the brunt in the backfield. Cardinals coach Ross Flemmer says Libis’ efficiency has kept the offense moving this season.

The Cardinals host Oldham-Ramona/Rutland this Friday, who are also in a similar position with their team. Coach Flemmer says the Raiders may hold a slight advantage that needs to be addressed.

Dell Rapids St Mary’s (2-5) faces ORR (1-6) to wrap up their regular seasons Friday night in Dell Rapids. The Farmer’s Ag Center Pregame Show on Jammin’ Country FM 103.1 and begins at 6:35pm, kick-off is at 7pm.
