The Sartell Sabre football team is now officially in competition for the state championship title.
On Nov. 2, the Sabres enjoyed a spectacular win over the Moorhead Spuds at Husky Stadium on the St. Cloud State University campus. That win, 24-16, made the Sabres the winners of the Section 8-5A title.
As of press time Wednesday, the Sabres, who have a seasonal 8-3 record, were slated to play St. Michael-Albertville Thursday, Nov. 7, also at Husky Stadium. The winner of that game will proceed to the semi-finals, which will take place in the Twin Cities Metrodome.
