|Cathedral season comes to end|
Weir High School is known for giving Major League Baseball Roy Oswalt and having an outstanding football tradition.
Cathedral High found out about that tradition Friday, falling to the Blue Devils 27-7.
"It was kind of like our whole year," said Cathedral coach Craig Beesley. "We started out slow and then played well in the second half."
Cramer Miller led Weir with 177 rushing yards.
Miller scored on a 20-yard run and Jay Miller's extra point gave Weir a 7-0 lead with 5:22 to go in the first quarter. Cramer Miller threw an 11-yard touchdown pas to Sammie Carter and ran in for the 2-point conversion to give the Lions a 15-0 lead.
Then Miller scored on touchdown runs of 3 and 15 yards for a 27-0 halftime lead. Daniel Huffines scored on a 7-yard run with 9:06 remaining in the fourth quarter to prevent the shutout. Cole Mann added the extra point. Dylan White completed 17 of 33 passes for 108 yards and two interceptions. Daniel Huffines had five receptions for 41 yards.
"It was a good experience for our guys," said Beesley, who was making his first appearance as a head coach. "We have a lot of guys coming back. We knew Weir was going to be a tough opponent and they have a lot of tradition. I think that had a lot to do with our sluggish start. But I've been pleased with our effort all year. We've got a year under our belt with our new offense and that will help us our more next season."
