Often referred to as the “Akron Holy War,” this rivalry between the Fighting Irish of STVM and the Knights of Hoban has always proven to be a game to remember year in and year out. The rivalry was renewed after a 20 year absence in 1996 and since then it has been played at a neutral site due to the large crowds. The winner of this rivalry gains possession of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Shillelagh trophy.
Archbishop Hoban :27
St. Vincent St. Mary :33
STVM jumped out to the early lead but entered the 4th quarter down 17-12. The Irish got the ball back with 4:00 left in the game and managed to get a TD to go up 20-17. Archbishop Hoban then tied the game up with a last second FG to send it into OT. In overtime there was a blocked FG and a fumble; STVM finally edged out the Knights 33-27 in 3 OT!
