Cardinals top Twinsburg Tigers 41-0.
The Twinsburg Tigers knew Mentor had a star in Mitch Trubisky, but they didn't realize the star of Friday's game would be the Cardinals' defense. That defense guaranteed Mentor (9-1) would be the NEO Conference Valley Division champions by shutting out a talented Twinsburg Tigers team (6-4) Friday night at Jerome T. Osborne Stadium. The Tigers, who do have playmakers including quarterback Jalen Washington and running back Tyrone McGuinea, could not generate any momentum against the Cardinals staunch defense. Mentor sacked the Tigers five times, costing Twinsburg a total of 52 yards, and intercepted them twice. "They played really hard on defense," Mentor Head Coach Steve Trivisonno said.

Last season the Tigers knocked off the No. 1 Cardinals but narrowly missed the playoffs.
For the second year in a row, it all comes down to Mentor for the Twinsburg Tigers. The Tigers faced their toughest challenge last season when they hosted the top-ranked and undefeated (9-0) Mentor Cardinals at Tiger Stadium. In order to reach the state playoffs and win the Northeast Ohio Conference's Valley Division, the Tigers had to do the unthinkable and knock off the Cardinals, who had seemed nearly unbeatable during much of the 2011 season. In a game that will likely be remembered for years at Twinsburg High School, the Tigers defeated Mentor, 38-35. The game was a thrilling shootout, as junior quarterback Jalen Washington completed 27 of 38 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns for the Tigers. "I'm so proud of our guys and how …
