The Mentor Cardinals visited Byers Field to face off against the St. Ignatius Wildcats ... again. The rivalry is one that should have a book written about its history. Tonight's game was another instant classic with the Cards (2-0) prevailing 37-33. A relatively calm first half had the Wildcats up 9-7. Then the 3rd quarter brought out all the scoring with the Wildcats scoring 21 points while the Cards racked up 15 points. Alex Matthews ran for 2 scores for the Cards in the 3rd along with dashing in for a 2 point conversion. The final quarter proved to be the breaking point as Mentor outscored St. Ignatius 15-3. Eddie Daugherty and Jason Blizzard each caught a 4th quarter Jake Floriea TD pass. The Mentor defense held the Wildcats at multiple key points in the game and deserve a shout out! The Cards come home next week when the Euclid Panthers visit the JTO. C'mon out to see the new field turf and to catch the action of the 2014 Mentor Cardinals. GO CARDS! by Mr. Pat Leber
