Foothill Tech’s Big Fourth Quarter Downs Cate

After rallying back from a 32-16 halftime deficit, the Cate boys basketball team couldn't put away Frontier League rival Foothill Tech, eventually losing 61-50.

Foothill Tech scored 21 points in the fourth quarter after the Rams (5-3, 1-1) had pulled within one point at the end of the third quarter.

"Our goal at halftime was to get consecutive stops and convert," explained Cate coach Andrew Gil. 

The game plan worked, at least briefly, as Cate outscored Foothill Tech 23-8 in the third quarter.

The Rams took their first lead of the game early in the fourth on a driving layup by Mason Mackall, who finished the game with 17 points and eight rebounds.

The Dragons responded with back-to-back threes to take a five-point lead, and held on the rest of the way.

Cate struggled from the free-throw line, making only 9 of 23.

Marko Pliso added 16 points for the Rams, who host Fillmore this 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!
