BLACKWELL, Texas — The Hermleigh Cardinals wrapped up their final scrimmage of the season here Friday afternoon, taking on Veribest. Hermleigh will open up the regular season next Friday, when the Cardinals travel to Strawn to face the Rockwall Heritage Christian Academy Eagles.
After opening up at home against Wilson in 2014, the Cardinals were left looking for a season-opener this year when Wilson decided to not play the Cardinals. Fortunately, Hermleigh was able to find an opponent for week one in Rockwall HCA who went 8-3 last season while playing in TAPPS Division 2.
Kickoff at Greyhound Stadium on Friday is set for 7:30pm.
