Cate Football Upsets No. 2 Flintridge Prep

Ryder Dinning scored the go-ahead touchdown and Luke Beckman intercepted a pass to seal a wild 55-48 victory for Cate over second-ranked Flintridge Prep in an 8-man football game on Saturday.

Running back Pierce Lundt had a huge game for the Rams, scoring three touchdowns. He caught a 60-yard pass from Will Bowlin in the first half, hauled in another touchdown pass from Jack Deardorff and broke a long run in the second half.

Cate led 47-36 in the fourth quarter only to see Flintridge Prep roar back and take a 48-47 lead.

The Rams, however, came back and reclaimed the lead on Dinning's run.

"This was a very big win for us, and I'm so proud of the fight our guys showed," coach Ben Soto said. "With the hot sun beating down on us, there were plenty of times for us to crack and let this game slip away. Instead, we dug deep to knock off the previously undefeated No. 2-ranked team in our division."

Cate's defense played a key role in the win as Carson Williams and Drew Anastasio both recovered fumbles in the end zone for touchdowns.

The Rams return to Condor League play on Saturday, October 15 as they host Orcutt Academy.

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!
