|Cathedral returns to playoffs|
Cathedral High head coach Craig Beesley praised his team's effort all year long, even after a 0-5 start.
The Green Wave players rewarded Beesley his first-ever playoff as a coach as the Green Wave walked past Salem 36-8 Friday to clinch the No. 3 seed out of Region 4-1A.
"These last five weeks have been good to us," said Beesley, who went to the playoffs as a freshman football player at Cathedral. "Somebody different has stepped up each week."
Cathedral will play at Weir Friday.
Cathedral used a 23-point second quarter to smoke the Wildcats.
"We went over wanting to have a good first half," Beesley said. "We didn't do much in the first quarter, but everything worked out for us in the second quarter. A lot of kids got to play in the second half."
A 56-yard touchdown pass from Dylan White to Daniel Huffines gave Cathedral (4-6, 4-3) a 6-0 lead.
A safety, 12-yards run by JaDarius Ealey and Hunter Foster and 31-yard run by Cole Mann gave the Green Wave a 29-0 halftime lead.
Caleb Upton threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Aaron White early in the fourth quarter.
Dylan White and Upton combined to complete 5 of 11 passes for 141 yards while Ealey led the Green Wave's rushing attack with 13 carries for 98 yards and Mann had four carries for 55 yards.
Huffines had three catches for 75 yards to go with six carries for 37 yards.
Weir is ranked No. 4 in Class A.
"They have a strong running game," Beesley said. "They have a 225-pounder named Kramer Miller who will carry the ball about 30 times a game. It's going to be a challenge, but we need to find a way to slow him down."
