Mats Football Is Ready for League Competition

Kaitlin Fenn, Staff Writer

The Mats dominated Alameda High School 44-14 at home last Friday to move to 3-1 on the season.

Throughout the game, the Miramonte defense executed stop after stop, and didn’t let the Hornets score until the third quarter. Adding to their lockdown defense, the offense, led by Drew Anderson ‘14, continued to bury Alameda as they increased their lead.

Dominic Paoletti ‘14 scored three of the Mats touchdowns to help get the win; one punt return early in the first, one 5-yard run, and one 32-yard pass from Anderson.

“I thought the game went well,” Paoletti said. “Alameda couldn’t stop our offense and couldn’t handle our defense.”

Mac Lavis ‘14 broke his foot during the game when an Alameda defender landed on his leg at the end of a run. He is expected to be out for the season.

This Friday, the Mats will begin league play and are preparing for the upcoming competition.

“We’re trying to pick up the intensity of practices because we’re going to be playing a lot better competition in league,” Rene Clark ‘14.

This Friday, Sep. 27, they will host Dublin, and are also getting ready to face rival Campolindo the week after.
