Mooney Opens the 2016 Season Against
Cleveland Heights

As they look to return to the OHSAA Playoffs, the Cardinals once again face an uphill battle with another tough schedule, including their last three games on the road.    Mooney returns an experienced core of seniors and several underclassmen who got valuable playing time last season.  Their opening game will be against Cleveland Heights, a team Mooney has only played once previous, in 1996, with the Cardinals winning 29-6.   Last season, Cleveland Heights finished a deceptive 4-5, and qualified for the playoffs in Division 1, Region 1, giving eventual champion St. Edward their toughest matchup of the playoffs, losing 20-12.  They also posses one of the top players in the state of Ohio in WR Jaylen Harris.  A game preview will be posted Wednesday evening.
