Mooney rolls, Crestview falls

Staff report

It looks like the Cardinal Mooney High School football team and its fans are going to sit out Black Friday celebrations.

That’s because they will be staging their own Burgundy and Gold party in the Division III state semifinals.

Friday, the Cardi-nals rallied from a 31-28 halftime deficit for a 70-44 victory over Dover at Canton’s Fawcett Stadium.

Roosevelt Griffin led the Cardinals with 233 yards rushing and three touchdowns.

Justus Ellis-Moore scored four touchdowns, and Anthony Dermotta returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown.

Next up for Mooney will be a state semifinal against Chagrin Falls.

Crestview didn’t fare as well in Division V, losing to Kirtland 35-7 at Warren’s Mollenkopf Stadium.

The Rebels trailed only 14-0 at halftime, but the Hornets scored two touchdowns in the third quarter.

Actually, it's scarlet red and gold.
Edward Cardinal Mooney's cassock was scarlet red.

This article was in regard to HS football, not idol worship & man-made fantasy like "cassocks" and the man-made "cardinal" cartoon fantasy.
The cardinals funny hats and a man-made book from (new testament) over a thousand years ago doesn't offer him nor you ANY connection to ANYTHING but insanity.

Congrats to the Cardinal Mooney football team, and to Crestview for making it this far.

Let's get a rally for Western Reserve tonight as they face Shadyside!

Northeast Ohio football is what it's about, not what school you attended!

Our wars have not been about God but about greed power and the NWO not God. Our leaders are not Godly leaders.

Although I am not Catholic I am a Christian-Go cards!

The same, sad, bitter people crawl out from under their rocks every year just about now. High school football playoff time! It's so sad. Look, the vast majority of public schools have open enrollment, if your school isn't getting the level of talent to compete with the top private schools, it's because the football programs at those schools simply don't attract the kids. Many of those players go to the school with the best programs. It's where the kids want to go.
