Mooney Comes Up Short Against Clinton-Massie

After taking a 21-14 lead in hopes of securing its ninth State Championship, Mooney watched Clarksville Clinton-Massie score 13 unanswered points in the second half to win 27-21.  In the midst of heavy snowfall, Mooney could not stop the brother duo of Bayle and Chayse Wolf who kept grinding out yards in the second half.  Mark Handel scored two touchdowns while CJ Amill added the other score on the ground.  Mooney finishes the 2013 season at 10-5. Congratulations to Clinton-Massie in repeating as State Champions.


Mooney Stops Steubenville 37-7

After jumping out to the 14-0 lead, Mooney never looked back in posting a convincing 37-7 over Steubenville on Friday evening.  Jon Saadey led the scoring with two rushing touchdowns, along with CJ Amill adding a rushing score and Mark Handel scoring a defensive touchdown.  Zak Kennedy had a flawless performance, converting three long field goals and going 4-4 on extra points.   According to the OHSAA, Mooney is only the third team in playoff history to achieve 60 or more playoff wins (Newark Catholic & St. Ignatius are the others).




Mooney Uses First Half Burst to Beat Bengals 28-21, Earn Their 16th Regional Championship

After two quick Benedictine touchdowns put Mooney in a 14-0 hole, the Cardinals aswered with 28 unanswered points in the first half.  Mooney led 28-14 at halftime and contained the Benedictine offense enough in the second half to earn a 28-21 vitory and the school's 16th Regional Championship.  Scoring for the Cardinals were Mark Handel and CJ Amill with long scoring runs, Jon Saadey with a 1 yard scoring run as well as a long touchdown pass to Denver Martin.  Mooney will play Steubenville (9-4) on Friday in the Division IV State Semifinal.  Over 300 photos have been posted.
