It took three quarters, but the St. Mary's Cardinals offense exploded Friday night to lead them to a 50-18 win over Allen.
Playing on Allen's home turf in the season opener, St. Mary's put up 30 of their 50 points in the fourth to pull away from a tough Allen squad. They held Allen to just eight points in that fourth quarter.
The win sends the Cardinals home with a win. They now turn their sights towards the Clearwater-Orchard Cyclones next Friday night.
