Nationally Ranked Mentor Thrashes Euclid 45-0 To Claim GCC Crown

MENTOR, OHIO – The old saying goes “offense wins games, but defense wins championships”.

Mentor may be the best in the state at both, as they trounced Euclid 45-0 on Friday night.

The Cardinals flexed their muscles on both sides early, forcing three turnovers in the opening quarter.

Junior quarterback Ian Kipp took advantage of this stellar defensive effort, throwing a pair of touchdowns to Luke Floriea and Brian Trobel to take a 17-0 lead into the second quarter.

Kipp would score on a 16-yard option carry, as the Cardinals led 24-0 at halftime.

Euclid’s defense would continue to struggle, allowing a pair of touchdown carries by Trobel, who finished with three total scores on the day.

Backup quarterback Charlie Hawley tied a ribbon around senior night with a touchdown carry, giving us our final score of 45-0.

With the victory, the Cardinals clinched the Greater Cleveland Conference title for the third consecutive season.

Mentor (9-0) will look to finish off a perfect regular season as they visit Strongsville (5-4).

Euclid (7-2) returns home next week to host Shaker Heights (2-6).
