Panthers cough up four fumbles and throw two interceptions in 41-3 loss against Fox.
Mistakes and the ability to capitalize on them was the key in Friday's Suburban West Conference football showdown between Mehlville and Fox. And at the outset, which began with a botched onside kick on the opening kickoff by Fox, it seemed like the breaks were going to go Mehlville's way. That feeling was further reinforced when the Panthers connected for a 30-yard halfback option pass on the first play of the game. Unfortunately, those two plays were about all Mehlville would get on Friday, as Fox forced six Panther turnovers and capitalized on them all in a convincing 41-3 Homecoming Night victory for the Warriors. "You're not going to win many games turning the ball over six times that's for sure," Mehlville head coach Eric Meyer said…

One drive started the fourth quarter with six carries before getting stopped on fourth down. “He just ran the ball super hard, that’s kind of what we expect. He came in and did a great job for us,” Meyer said. Joe Murphy, who stepped…

See which businesses could be moving into the abandon property.
An old house might be converted into businesses at the space between Mehlville High School and St. Anthony’s Lemay Urgent Care. The 2-acre lot would hold two companies: Kyle’s Landscaping and ServPro of Oakville and Mehlville. ServePro restores homes and businesses from floods and fires. The two business owners—Kyle Lang and Kevin Thole—submitted a request to change the zoning of the land from a residential to a planned commercial district. At a public hearing on Monday, five people symbolically voted in favor of the business and zero voted against. The St. Louis County Planning Commission will vote to approve or deny the request at a meeting Sept. 10. Lang and Thole, who both live in the area, bought the land from an auction. A …
