Last Game at Helm Field for Los Gatos Seniors

Friday night at Helm Field was the very last home game for our seniors. The Wildcats opened the CCS playoffs with 48-0 victory over Westmont High School. The Cats started off a little slow but a Hirschman to Berg touchdown pass got things rolling. Joey Vizzusi, made a great play intercepting a Westmont pass and returning it for a TD.

The Cats then added 28 points in the second quarter to take a 41-0 lead at the half to put the game away early. Sophomore running back Garrett Zeiter rushed for 88 yds. and scored 3 TDs. in 19 carries in one half, and Nick Hirschman was 9 of 12 for 184 yds, and two TDs.

Andrew Berg had a touchdown catch and 90 yds. in receptions. Jake Hackman-Salazar had a TD and 80 yds. in receptions. Alec Gletzer and Zeiter also caught passes as did Dionte Cook from Hayden Hibberd. Andy Heimer returned as the kicker and hit on 6 of 7 PAT On defense it was truly a team effort as Joey Vizzusi and Alec Gletzer led the way with 8 tackles each, but the Cats had an outstanding group of defensive players including Mike Sporck, Suhkrah Sohal, Charlie Zweng, Andy Aguiar, Shane Smith, Andrew Tjon, Nick Martino, Nick Lamson, Harrsion Tinsley and Landon Cramer. Cory McDowell had a big run and scored a TD, while Bevan Waite also had a long run.

Sam Bowers returned to action and is expected to be back at full force this week against Arago The Cats continue the defense of their CCS title when they travel to Westmont this Friday to play Aragon High School at 7pm. So if you are full from your turkey and looking for good high school football, swing on out to Westmont high and see the Cats in the semi-finals of the CCS Division II Championship.

By the way, congratulations to the field hockey team on another CCS title, and as always, thanks for the support Coach Cattolico
