St. Vincent-St. Mary dominates first half in 48-0 beating. Walsh and Cuyahoga Falls Black Tigers lose as well. CVCA notches win.
The Woodridge Bulldogs were roughed up Friday night in a 48-0 loss to a strong and fast St. Vincent-St. Mary football team. By halftime the Irish had already staked a 41-0 lead. In the second half injuries started taking their toll on Woodridge, including quarterback Sean McCoy, who might have suffered a concussion after a hard hit. The Bulldogs made one serious threat to score with a first-and-goal after a nice pass-and-run play. But the drive fizzled as the third quarter ended. It was a pretty rough night for Cuyahoga Falls gridiron warriors Friday. In other scores, Kent Roosevelt beat the Cuyahoga Falls Black Tigers 20-15; Bishop Watterson beat Walsh Jesuit 13-7 in Columbus*; and Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy beat LaBrae 23-14 …

For kids under 18, even talking on cell phones while driving will be illegal in Cuyahoga Falls and across Ohio.
Ohio's new law banning texting while driving takes effect Aug.31, prohibiting anyone from sending or reading messages from behind the wheel. The measure takes things a step further for drivers under 18: they can't talk on a cell phone at all, even with Bluetooth or other hands-free methods. "I am confident that this one small step will have a great impact as we work toward safer roadways," said State Sen. Tom Patton, R-24, who supported the legislation. No one will get ticketed just yet. There's a six-month grace period built into the law, and police will issue warnings until next March 1. But "texting" doesn't just mean thumbing in messages. It applies to reading, too -- even checking your email. "It is important to note that 'texting' …
