No. 1 Cate Outguns Flintridge Prep, 62-52

Jack Deardorff runs for 3 TDs, passes for 2 more

Cate overcame some early adversity to rally past No. 8 Flintridge Prep on Saturday night and post a 62-52 victory in an 8-man football game at La Canada Flintridge.

Cate, ranked No. 1 in Southern California, improved to 5-0.

The miscues started early as the Rams fumbled the opening kickoff and Flintridge scored just a few plays later to take a 6-0 lead. It was the first time since August that the Rams have trailed in a game.

The Cate offense sparkled all game long as Jack Deardorff had three touchdowns on the ground (22, 2 and 65 yards) as well as two in the air. The two passing scores went to Thomas Nettesheim (15 yards) and Khadim Pouye (20 yards). Drew Anastasio had a great game on the ground, rushing for three touchdowns of 35, 11 and 17 yards. William Deardorff  also found the end zone for Cate, scoring on a 23-yard run. Nettesheim had several great catches during the game, while the offensive line of Sebastian Richardson, Scott Holmes, and Ethan Cassulo blocked well all game long. 

"I'm proud of the heart we showed," said Rams coach David Soto. "We've been battling injury and illness all week but we never used that as an excuse. Flintridge is a very dangerous team and it showed. We showed a lot of composure in this game and that experience is going to help us down the road. We have plenty to work on going forward and we certainly have our work cut out for us as we face some very tough teams coming up."

Cate is back on the road on Friday, Oct. 12, when they head to Ojai to take on the Villanova Wildcats. Kick-off is set for 7 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!
