First place in the De Anza league at stake Friday night at Helm Field

Friday night the Cats will host Palo Alto at Helm Field in a game for first place in the De Anza League. The winner of this game will certainly have a leg up on everyone toward the title in one of the toughest and most competitive leagues in CCS.

Both teams come in with outstanding records, and the Vikings are the defending league and State Champions. The two teams have very similar records, and offensively they both average over 33 points per game. Los Gatos has a slight edge defensively allowing only 11 points per game while Palo Alto has allowed 17.

The Vikings had a big win over Wilcox while the Cats settled for a tie, although they won the overtime tie breaker. Palo Alto has been a big play team, using their team speed for long touchdown strikes, while Los Gatos is a team that will grind it out with a powerful running attack.

If the Cats can limit the Vikings big plays they have a chance to pull off the upset. It looks to be a great high school football match-up Friday night, with first place in the De Anza League at stake.
Thanks for all the support,
Coach Cattolico
