Cate’s comeback fell short, as the Rams fell to Foothill Tech, 38-30, in a girls basketball game on Thursday night.

Meena Baher led the Rams with 11 points and four steals, and Lily Zanze had eight points and 10 rebounds.

“We extended our defensive pressure against the Dragons,” coach Laura Moore said of the comeback  “Baher and seniors Piper Brooks and Maya Fenelon led the tough defensive charge in the frontline, holding the Dragons to only five points in the fourth quarter.

“Unfortunately, we struggled to capitalize on multiple deflections and steals.”

Cate next plays against Carpinteria next Thursday.
