Cate Falls to Nordhoff in Overtime of League Opener

Christian Herman scored two goals, but the Cate boys soccer team fell in overtime of their Tri-Valley League opener against Nordhoff, 4-3.

Herman scored on a pass from Juan Magalhaes in the 6th minute, but Nordhoff rattled off three straight goals to put the Rams (2-3-1, 0-1) in a 3-1 hole early in the second half.

In the 48th minute, freshman Harry Corman served a beautiful corner kick that Herman placed into the back of the net, and then Magalhaes scored on a penalty kick in the 74th minute to tie up the match at 3-3.

Three minutes into overtime, a Cate defender inadvertently deflected a Nordhoff cross into the net, sealing the victory for the Rangers.

"I give our guys a ton of credit for battling back from two goals down in the second half to force overtime," said Cate coach Pete Mack, "but it took a lot of energy to do that and we just didn't seem to have quite enough to complete the job."

Cate takes on Carpinteria away next Wednesday in their second Tri-Valley League match.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
