Season starts with big home game against Nixa

The Webb City Cardinals aren’t getting a soft start to begin the 2022 season. The Nixa Eagles will be at Cardinal Stadium for the 7 p.m. kickoff Friday, Aug. 26.

Nixa was one of three teams to defeat the Class 5 State Champion Cardinals last year. At Nixa, it was the seventh game of the season, and the score was 41-27.

The Cardinals won their remaining seven games, including the Show Me Bowl. The Eagles were defeated in the Class 6 playoffs by Joplin.

Webb City warmed up for the season at home last week by exchanging plays with Seneca and Lamar during a jamboree. Joplin also played Seneca and Lamar at the jamboree.
