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.
