The Cards opened the scoring in the first quarter on a 69-yard touchdown run.  The extra point was good and Mooney led 7-0.

Lake Catholic had a second quarter touchdown to leave the game tied 7-7 at half.

Mooney came alive in the third quarter.  After a strong defensive series to force a punt, quarterback Jon Saadey found Handel on a crossing route.  Handel went 39 yards before being tackled at about the ten-yard line.

CJ Amil capped that drive with a three-yard touchdown run to give Mooney a 14-7 lead.

The defense held the rest of the way and Zak Kennedy booted a field goal with 6:54 remaining in the fourth quarter to finish the scoring.

Mooney improves to 3-2.  The Cards travel to Lakewood to face Lakewood St. Ed’s next Saturday at 7 pm.
