Weird game, Catholic Defense which had bludgeoned everybody to death all year decided to play only 3 defensive linemen and drop linebackers into coverage all night. Sun Valley had a free 4 to 6 yard rush all night but did not consistently take it.
Catholic Offense went nowhere in the first quarter, then showed what they could be by dominating the second quarter to score three touchdowns on two dominating ground and pound drives and a quick strike drive to end the half.
3rd quarter saw Sun Valley moving the ball but self destructing or being blown up on key downs and penalties ( by a defense that chose to remain defensive vs Sam Howell instead of being aggressive). Catholic offense went back to not dominating the run game and did nothing.
Finally in the 4th Qt after a couple of good stops by the D (who were still playing careful vs Howell back on thier heels), Catholic mounted a drive that ate up the back end of the quarter that ended the game.
Still don’t know what to make of this team, still feels like if this offense played up to thier talent level, a lot of these games (Country Day, Weddington, Monroe and Sun Valley) should not have been close and this offense should have been worth at least one score against Charlotte Christian.
