BRODHEAD - The Cardinals fell victim to the quick set in multiple senses in its season-ending sweep at the hands of Clinton Tuesday night.The fifth-seeded Cougars peppered the Cardinals early with quick-set kills, leading to winning a quick set of three games in the first round of WIAA Division 2 regionals, 25-23, 25-16, 25-23.A season removed from a trip to state, the Cards were not ready to go home down 19-15 in Game 3.They rattled off five straight points in the finale to take a 20-19 lead and, behind a crushed spike kill through the teeth of the defense by Mariah Mohns, led again at 23-22 before a service error tied the game at 23.
