POYEN â€” No matter how the rest of the season goes for the Harmony Grove Cardinals, the 2014 season will go down as a championship year. After beating Cutter Morning Star and Magnet Cove in the first two games of the Poyen Tournament last week, the Cardinals flew past 5-3A conference rival Glen Rose 5-0 to capture the hardware.
â€śIt was a great win,â€ť Head Coach Brandon Mynhier said. â€śYou want to win against Glen Rose anytime you can and they are going to always put a great team on the field. We just went out and tried to win a championship. It was a fun time for all of us.â€ť
