Cathedral’s undefeated season remained intact Saturday night as the Panthers dispatched their toughest foe to date in Pope John Paul II, 26-22, at Madison Park.
With both teams averaging 40-plus points per contest, it was expected that both sides would come barreling out of the gates, but at halftime the score was just 8-6 in favor of Pope John Paul II, which snagged the lead just before the end of the first quarter on a 40-yard strike from junior Ryan Barabe to Billy Satkevich.
Things started to ignite in the second half.
Within the first five minutes, Cathedral showed some of that championship mettle from last season’s Super Bowl winning team. The Panthers(4-0), scored a quick 14 points to take the lead. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
