The Cathedral Catholic High School freshman 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.

Torrey Pines Falcon freshmen recently hosted the Mission Hills Grizzlies. Both teams came into the game off of big wins last week, Torrey Pines 41-0 over Sweetwater, and Mission Hills 25-7 over perennial powerhouse Cathedral Catholic. Torrey Pines defense shut down the Mission Hills offense and came up with the big plays when they needed them, while the Torrey Pines offense was unstoppable.

The Grizzlies received the opening kickoff and went three and out. Then on the Falcon’s opening drive they were intercepted and Mission Hills had the ball back on their own 38. After a screen pass was stopped short by #42 Zach Friedland, the Grizzlies had third and long. On a read option their back broke free for a long TD run and Mission Hills was on the board first, 7-0.
