The Redmen went on the road to Sedgwick and routed the Cardinals 61-27 Friday night to move on to the 1A semifinals.

They'll return home next Friday to host Plainville in a rematch from week 4 that Smith Center won 21-10. The two teams met in last year's 2-1A sub-state round as well--Smith Center won that game 51-0.
