Cathedral Catholic Dons at Eastlake Titans (Sept. 30, 2011)

Last Meeting: 10/01/10 Eastlake 24 @ Cathedral 22

The undisputed #1 Eastlake Titans are on fire and are showing no signs of cooling down. After a hard fought win at Helix to kick off the season, the Titans have managed to win their next 3 games while holding those opponents to 7 points or less. Next on the menu are the #6 Cathedral Dons who will be playing the last of 4 consecutive road games. The Dons are coming off a much needed blow-out victory over Olympian after getting blown out themselves by Helix the week before.

Publisher's Prediction:

 

Eastlake defeated the same Helix team that gave Cathedral fits a few weeks ago. So this should be a sure blow out win right? Ok lets be fair here. This is a brand new game and anything can….who am I kidding? Cathedral has a talented team but if that game at Helix proved anything, it’s the fact that they can’t hang with the elite, especially on the road. Eastlake dominates while Cathedral hopes to leave this game with all their key players healthy for league play.
