COLUMBUS — St. Ignatius is playing its best football of the season at the best time.

The Wildcats scored touchdowns on a blocked punt and a fumble return Saturday night to defeat two-time defending Division I State Champion Archbishop Moeller 34-20 in a game played at Dublin Coffman Stadium.

Ohio State recruit Dre’Mont Jones opened the scoring when he stripped, scooped and scored on a Crusaders’ fumble early in the first quarter.

Dennis Grosel hit his big playmaker, Jack Cook for another touchdown in the second quarter to make it 14-0 and the Wildcats never looked back.

Mike Matthews recovered a blocked punt in the end zone to make it 28-0 St. Ignatius (6-2) before Moeller (6-2) finally got on the board just before halftime.

Corbett Griffith kicked two field goals for St. Ignatius, which all but locked up a Playoff berth in Division I, Region 1, with the win.

The Wildcats travel to Cincinnati next Saturday to face another Queen City powerhouse, St. Xavier (6-2), before closing out the season against arch-rival St. Edward (6-2) on Saturday, November 1st at Byers Field.
