Season two under head coach Mark Hudson started much the same way season one went, with a win.
The Boone Central/Newman Grove Cardinals came out on top in an early season test against Pierce, 27-21.
Dylan Gentrup led the Cardinals offensively. The first-year quarterback was four of eight passing for 129 yards and two touchdowns while adding 142 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Levi Krueger also added 96 yards rushing.
Cody Nelson was Gentrup's favorite target on the night, catching three passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns.
Dalton Wagner lead the way on defense for Boone Central/Newman Grove with 15 total tackles.
Now at 1-0 on the year, the Cardinals prepare to take on Wayne next Friday in Albion.
