The Turpin Cardinals traveled to take on one of the top teams in their district, Fairview Friday night. Because of looming storms the game time was moved up to 6 p.m., and by 8 p.m. it was all over after being called because of lighting, 47-0.

“Obviously we didn’t play very well,” Cardinals coach Justin Hanna said. “There were a few spots where we moved the ball early. We didn’t play physical enough up front, and I thought our tackling was pretty poor.”

The Fairview Yellowjackets took advantage of early Turpin turnovers, and from there, it snowballed in a hurry.

“”We had a couple of turnovers on some early drives where we had it going a little,” Hanna said. “They took advantage of them. They are a really good football team, very talented and physical up front.”

The road does not get any easier for the struggling Cardinals, who are trying to end a losing streak that stands at 22 games. Turpin ((0-4, 0-2) will host top-ten Okeene Friday.
