Catty youth teams play well in opener

Thursday, August 23, 2012 by The Press in Sports

Catty youth football is back.

Four teams traveled to Williams Township to take on the Rams of Williams Township.

The flag team put on an impressive show as the kids ran up and down the field snagging every flag they could. Since the league mandates that this level be used as an instructional level, no score is kept and no touchdowns are recorded.

Coach Silva and his staff did an excellent job keeping with the spirit of fair play and substituted each student-athlete according to the rules.
