Taylor hit Cherry again in the third quarter, but that drive stalled a few plays later.
Taylor, a standout receiver and defensive back, finished with 68 passing yards.
Tulsa East Central lineman Michael Johnson was a busy two-way player Saturday night, but if you weren't watching closely, you probably didn't notice.
The senior defensive end wears jersey No. 42, but when the Cardinals had the ball, Johnson would put a second jersey, No. 65, over the top of his standard uniform and enter the game as right tackle.
The No. 65 jersey was an older style and had red numbers, instead of the white numbers on the rest of the team's uniforms.
Johnson is listed on the roster as a fullback and moved to the line because of injuries.
