TPHS freshmen football team wins again

TPHS freshmen football team wins again

The Cathedral Catholic High School freshmen football team had a tough opening schedule falling to Mission Hills 25-7, and to last year’s champion St. John Bosco, 48-0. So they were fired up to take on the undefeated Torrey Pines Falcons who beat Sweetwater 41-0, and Mission Hills 56-21. The Dons played well and held the Falcons to their lowest point total all year, but could not overcome the Torrey Pines defense.

Cathedral took the opening kickoff and picked up three first downs, including a crucial first down on a 9-yard run by quarterback #11 Thomas Kane-Berman, and a 22-yard run by #32 Brandon Hernandez, which could have gone all the way but for a tackle by #24 Matthew Goena. The drive stalled and Cathedral missed the field goal.

Classical music calms canine companions

When I return home after a long day, I love being greeted our rescued boxer, Cutie Patootie. When I pet that dog, I can feel the stress sheet right off of me.

Our dogs do so much for us. For all of the comfort they provide, what can we do for them when they face stressful situations? One simple answer is to play classical music.

Dawn Danielson, director of the county’s Department of Animal Services, says that her staff plays music at all three county shelters. Music is proven to calm a distressed dog’s nerves.

For a second straight week, Cathedral Catholic trailed late in the second half. And for a second straight week, the Dons came from behind to win.

Timothy Semenza kicked a late field goal to lead the Dons to an 8-7 come-from-behind victory over local rival Torrey Pines in a nonleague game on Sept. 12.

Semenza’s 21-yarder came with just 3:28 left in the game. Semenza also kicked a 41-yarder in the second quarter that broke a scoreless tie.

Reward offered for information on suspected bank robber

Authorities announced recently that a $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man suspected of robbing more than a dozen San Diego-area banks, including a Wells Fargo banks on Del Mar Heights Rd., over the last 10 months.

During most of the heists — two of which occurred on the same day — the thief pretended to have a gun under his clothing and ordered everyone present to either raise their hands over their heads or lie down on the floor, according to the FBI.
