Cate Football Blows Out Flintridge Prep to Win Home Opener

After a 43-12 week one loss at Mojave, Cate got their football season back on track with a 70-20 non-league rout of Flintridge Prep at home on Saturday in the team's home opener.

The Rams scored early and often, jumping out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. The Cate offense didn't let up in the second quarter either, finding the end zone three more times before halftime. Cate lead 42-7 at the break.

Running back Drew Anastasio led the way offensively for the Rams, scoring five touchdowns on the day. Anastasio managed 141 yards rushing on eight carries, scoring two of his touchdowns on the ground. He also hauled in three touchdown passes from Jack Deardorff from 13, five, and 50 yards out, respectively.

Cate's Patrick Armstrong scored on the ground twice and tossed a 20-yard touchdown to Khadim Pouye.

"This was a great way to pick up our fist win of the year," explained Cate coach David Soto. "We were frustrated with the way our opener went and after a week off, I'm proud of the way we responded. We executed our game plan the way we wanted and we played hard for 4 quarters."

Cate improves to 1-1 on the season and travels south to take on Lancaster Baptist on Friday.

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!
