|Cathedral opens with win|
Cathedral High head football coach Craig Beesley never figured when Adam Kaiser sacked Dexter quarterback Tyler Hart in his own end zone in the second quarter of the Green Wave's season-opener that he would not need any more points the entire game.
But that was the case as Cathedral rolled to an impressive 23-0 win over the Bulldogs at Cathedral Thursday.
Cathedral posted its first shutout in at least seven years. The Green Wave gave up an average of 30 points a game last year.
"I was surprised about that, especially with the athletic ability Dexter brought to the game," Beesley said. "We were scared of the big play, but we were able to hold them down. You never know what to expect from the first game."
It was another big play by the Green Wave defense which led to Cathedral's second score as Jeb White forced a blocked punt near the Dexter end zone and Zac Arnold recovered the ball for a touchdown with four seconds remaining in the first half.
"That was a big difference going into halftime up nine points instead of two," Beesley said. "We just sent two back and wasn't even going to field the punt and sent everybody after it," Beesley said.
The Cathedral offense was able to do in the fourth quarter what Beesley was looking for the entire game, as Jeb White scored on a 30-yard run and 1-yard run to put the game away.
White finished with 115 yards on 15 carries.
Cathedral travels to Salem Friday.
"They run the spread offense and will make you cover the whole field," Beesley said. "We're trying to keep the guys focused this week and keep to the same routine, even though it's tough. But it's always good to get that first win behind you. We struggled early last year and was behind the eight ball all year."
