Cardinals Score 24 Unanswered Points in Second Half to Defeat Akron STVM 31-16
The Akron St. Vincent - St. Mary Fighting Irish took the opening kickoff of the second half to take a 16-7 lead in the game, when Mooney then scored the final 24 points of the game to win 31-16. When the Irish returned the kick, it meant that although the score was 16-7, an offensive touchdown had yet to be scored in the game. Mooney scored their first points on a kickoff return of their own by Darrell Jackson. Akron STVM had a defensive score in the first half when they returned a fumble 60 yards for a touchdown.
The second half saw some questionable officiating which swung the momentum of the game in Mooney's favor. Mooney also took advantage of a STVM fumble and turned it into a touchdown drive. Scoring rushing touchdowns for the Cardinals on offense were Antonio Page (2 TDs) and Jaylen Hewlett. Paul Graziano added a field goal and three extra points, and Lizzie Philibin added an extra point. Linebacker Alex Sepesy had two interceptions and Patrick Pelini added an interception in the 4th quarter. Mooney advances to 3-1 and will play at Mentor Lake Catholic next week.
