The 2014 football season has now completed 7 weeks. Our Wildcats stand at a very solid 6-1 after last week’s 49-7 defeat of Palo Alto. The cats got off to a bit of a slow start on offense and defense, but then got things going with all three phases of the game, and never looked back.
After a quick “3 and out” on offense, and then an impressive touchdown drive by Paly that included two 3rd down conversions and two 4th down conversions by the Viking offense, the Cats started to roll and never looked back. The offense went on to score 49 unanswered points, while the defense and special played great football for the remainder of the game.
Dru Brown was solid again completing 11 of 16 passes for 160 yards and touchdown passes to Matt Wilcox and Quinn Spiteri. The ground game ran for 256 yards and 5 touchdowns, with Joey Wood leading the way with 102 yards. Spiteri, Jack Salcido, and Jordan Howell all contributed over 30 rushing yards each.
That brings us to Halloween night and a trip to Milpitas High School. Both teams are highly ranked and undefeated in league play. Milpitas has impressive wins over Valley Christian and Wilcox with a dominant defense and explosive offense. This is one of the games that many Cats fans have marked on their calendars. The Milpitas-Los Gatos rivalry has been a great one over the last ten years, with Los Gatos winning 5 times, and Milpitas winning 4 times, with one tie.
To keep up the current winning streak, the Cats will have to play a great game on both sides of the ball and certainly on special teams. We are as healthy as we have been in recent weeks, getting back several players that have been out with injury. Should be a fun trip to Milpitas.
