Recap: It was homecoming at Cathedral Catholic as they took on the Scripps Ranch Falcons. Game was at 7 p.m. the 2-4 Dons facing the 1-5 Falcons. First year Scripps Ranch head coach Marlon Gardinera trying to pick up a win, the first time in a while that the Falcons have had a decent shot at beating the Dons in several years.
Cathedral Catholic junior running back Ryan Kilpatrick helped lead the Dons to their victory as he had 5 touchdowns, 15 carries, and 236 yards on the night. This of course with the help of quarterback Kai Brown who knew exactly who to pass the ball to as the duo had a stream of success against the Falcons.
Scripps Ranch couldn’t quite connect against the Dons, but they did prove victorious once as quarterback Sean Field threw a long bomb to Keith Davis to put the Falcons on the board.
It was a rough game Cathedral with three personal fouls in the first quarter alone but once they settled in they couldn’t stop scoring. Cathedral takes this one on their home turf and on homecoming with a final score of 62-7.
