Brother Martin is no stranger to fighting back in the fourth. It’s part of how they remained undefeated in this crazy football season.
But turnover timing made a big difference in this one, just one part of a saga where Catholic advances past Brother Martin to play for another LHSAA state title.
If you’re just comparing QB production, Brother Martin would have taken the night. Experienced junior Garrett Mmahat was 14/21 for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns. Catholic’s new guy Daniel Beale accounted for himself well at 10/16 for 201 yards as well as 3 touchdowns, showing the poise that his coach says makes him a player to watch.
But it was the Bears’ skilled players in every position that brought them the victory. Even so, it was a close game from the outset and the stats tell that story.

Fortunately for the Bears, they have a defense that will not quit. They made the plays that made the difference in this game, capitalizing on turnovers and converting them to touchdowns.
Catholic coach Gabe Fertitta said,”These guys brought their guts today,” in a glowing review of his entire team’s effort.
