Short-handed Cate Falls at Santa Paula, 3-1

Cate boys soccer followed a similar pattern in its 3-1 loss at Santa Paula on a rainy Wednesday night: the Rams scored first in the Tri-Valley League game.

Juan Magalhaes put on some nifty moves in the box before crossing the ball to Baker Fox for the finish in the ninth minute. But Santa Paula answered two minutes later and took the lead six minutes after that on a rocket shot from 35 yards. The Cardinals added another goal in the second half.

Cate at times played with 10 players due to a roster depleted by injuries and illness.

"So, under less than ideal circumstances, it's hard not to be pleased by how well we competed," said Cate coach Peter Mack. "We made life tough for the Cardinals and limited them to mostly outside shots. As usual, our back line — even without captain Ryan Borchardt (injury) for almost the entire game — was excellent. We had great leadership from captain Christian Herman, who was called on to play out of position most of the night, and Ben Jessup who not only organized our defense superbly from the center back position, but also made a heroic save as our keeper in the final minutes of the game."

Goalkeeper Cullen Barber made 15 saves on the night.

The loss drops Cate to 2-6-1 overall and 0-4 in league play.

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!
