The Kats got their second conference win tonight by defeating the Southeastern LA Lions in Bowers Stadium. Wade Pate came off of the bench to go 16-22 (72.7%) for 260 yards and 3 tds. He also added 25 yards on the ground and another 2 tds. Player of the week?
Defense held its own. They gave up ALOT of yards but held at the crucial times. Had a four play goal line stand at the end of the 3rd(?) which would have made it a close game but the Kats held, got it back and went 98 yards for the score.
Great game for the Kats!
