Cate Runs Out of Steam Against Strong Foothill Tech Squad

Cate was outscored 34-14 in the second and third quarters and fell to visiting Foothill Tech, 64-51, in a Frontier League boys basketball game on Wednesday night.

The Rams were playing for the second straight night after returning from a long layoff because of the Thomas Fire and mudslides in the area, and coach Andy Gil felt his players got tired.

"Coming off a game last night, the second and third quarter was too much of a deficit for us to overcome in the fourth," he said. "We just gave up one too many offensive boards and missed too many layups and free throws in the middle. Our best two quarters came in the beginning and the end."

Senior Marko Pliso scored 21 points and sophomore Khadim Pouye had to lead Cate (3-1, 2-1 in league).

"Foothill Tech just had too many weapons," Gil said. "They are very deep, and on a night when three players have more than 14 points, it's hard to stop."

The Rams are back in action Friday at home against Fillmore at 6 p.m.

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!
