“Someone had to lose. We’re a whole lot better 3-2 team than we were a year ago.”

We just didn’t come out on top,” Farmer noted of Friday’s game. You’ve got to move on.”

In the back-and-forth scoring, the Cardinals’ Turner Ussery hit Rashaun Brown and Easton Jenkins with caught touchdown passes. Jesus Alviar made one extra point, uncharacteristically missed one, but kicked a field goal.

Chesnee (3-3) will be the Cardinals’ first of four conference opponents this season. This will also be the Eagles’ first conference game of the year. Opening kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Chesnee.
