The Sartell Sabres’ football team, at seven wins and three losses, will compete for the Section 8-5A championship when it plays Moorhead at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2.
The game will take place in Husky Stadium on the St. Cloud State University campus.
Last Saturday, the Sabres pummeled St. Cloud Tech, 32-10, in the semifinals, the sixth straight win for Sartell thus far in the season. For the Sabres it was a sweetly coveted victory because earlier in the season Sartell lost its first game to Tech, 14-0.
