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. "They played hard and they played fast." Meanwhile, …

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 …

We ask you to tell us who wins as both Twinsburg and Solon Patch editors place a little wager
The Twinsburg Tigers girls basketball team is the defending state champ and ranked No. 4 in the state. The Solon Comets have only lost two games and are on a tear this season. This could be the game of the season for both teams, and their hometowns. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. at Solon High School. So we want you to tell us who wins the game and how it goes down. Will the Comets hit a half-court buzzer beater at the last second? Will Twinsburg's Malina Howard dominate the game? Tell us what you think in the comments below. And, to make it even more interesting, the editors for each Patch have placed a little wager. The losing editor will wear the winning team's shirt to an upcoming school board meeting. Now that could be pretty embarassing.

Old rivals meet again when Tigers host the Comets in a huge NOC showdown
They have met on the football field 50 times in the past but only one game matters when Solon makes the short bus trip down the road to Twinsburg Friday night. The Comets and the Tigers will renew one of the oldest and fiercest rivalries in the area with computer points, a possible NOC Valley Division crown and a lot of pride on the line. Solon, ranked 13th in the state poll, is coming off a 44-20 loss to unbeaten Mentor, snapping the Comets' 20-game home winning streak. Twinsburg once again had its offense in high gear in a 42-21 rout of Brunswick and is tied for the division lead with Mentor.

Barton scores six times to lead Tigers to victory
Twinsburg junior running back John Barton has had an exceptional 2011 season, but even he couldn't have imagined the performance he and the rest of the Tigers displayed on Thursday night. Twinsburg (5-2) easily defeated Brunswick (5-2), 42-21, Thursday night. Barton was the star of the night, scoring six total touchdowns to lead the Tigers to a convincing victory over the Blue Devils. Following an early fumble deep in Brunswick territory, Twinsburg rebounded nicely by moving down the field in six plays to take the lead on a 23-yard touchdown run by Barton. The Tigers extended their lead to 14-0 on the ensuing one-play drive, in which Barton took a toss sweep 72 yards down the visitors' sideline for his second touchdown of the quarter. …

Twinsburg will take on another tough opponent as the season hits the midway point
Nobody ever said it was going to be easy. Twinsburg's football team knew it had a rugged schedule before the season ever kicked off. The Tigers, now 2-2 after a heartbreaking 27-24 overtime loss at Stow last week, are looking for a big effort for Friday night's home opener with Brush.
