Irish Defeat Mooney in Home Opener to Move to 4-0; Prepares for Holy War
On a perfect Friday evening, the Irish hosted Youngstown Cardinal Mooney in their home opener at Green Street Stadium/John Cistone Field. STVM jumped out to a quick 21-0 lead in the first half, but a blocked field goal that was returned for a touchdown as time expired allowed the Cardinals to stay in the game. Mooney closed the gap with a score in the 3rd, but the Irish answered in the 4th to pull ahead 27-14. A late Mooney touchdown brought the final score to 27-21. Best of luck to the Cardinals the rest of the way!
We all know what the Irish are preparing for now...THE AKRON HOLY WAR. Hoban comes in at 3-1 with their lone loss to St. Ignatius in week one of the season. The Knights are coming off a dominating 41-0 win against West Toronto Prep from Canada. The series between the Irish and Knights is currently tied 21-21 with the Knights winning the last four meetings (two were OHSAA playoff games and non-Shillelagh games). Prior to that, STVM won eight straight against Hoban. For more rivalry history, visit the Hoban rivalry page.

STVM Holds Off Tough Buchtel Team; Move on to Home Opener vs. Mooney
The Irish went into face a tough Buchtel team on Saturday in what is believed to be the first time these two teams played at Buchtel in the history of the series. In a great football atmosphere on a cool September afternoon, the Griffins threw the first punch when they scored a few plays after recovering an Irish fumble. STVM responded with a drive of their own, but missed the extra point. A Griffin interception for a touchdown put Buchtel up 14-6 going into halftime. Mixed with their stout defense, The Irish would make the necessary offensive adjustments and score 15 unanswered points in the second half to win the game 21-14.
STVM will play at home for the first time this season as they host Youngstown Cardinal Mooney this Friday, September 15. Mooney is coming off of tough losses to two high-ranked Division II and Division III teams: Hoban and Columbus St. Francis DeSales. This will be Mooney's 4th straight game on the road. The Cardinals currently lead the series 23-3.
