The Kaiser Cats were seeking perfection, and the Colton Yellowjackets never came close to stopping them from achieving that goal.

Kaiser's football team rolled to a 20-0 lead in the first quarter and breezed to a 42-8 win on Nov. 1, giving the Cats a spotless 10-0 record at the conclusion of the regular season.

Coach Bill Cardosi's squad wrapped up its second straight undisputed Sunkist League championship with a 5-0 mark. The Cats have won 14 league titles in the school's 19 years of varsity competition.

Kaiser, which won the CIF title last year and finished second in the state, will begin playoff action on Friday, Nov. 8 with a home game against Redondo Union (5-4).  The Cats are seeded No. 2 in the Division 6 tournament.

The Cats were dominant against Colton from the very start, taking over on the Yellowjackets' 35-yard line in the opening minutes after a short punt by the opponents. Dustin Chaidez ran 15 yards around the right side to set up quarterback Trevian Tribble's 15-yard touchdown jaunt.

On Kaiser's next possession, Tribble connected with Nate Bedolla on a 42-yard touchdown pass.

Then Kaiser's Nicholas Edwards intercepted a pass and returned it to the Colton 20-yard line, and from there Chaidez sliced through the middle for a TD.

The Yellowjackets cashed in a TD in the second period, but the Cats elevated their lead to 27-8 at halftime thanks to a 1-yard sneak by Tribble. The score was set up by a 22-yard screen pass to Gabriel Ortiz and a 20-yard scramble by Tribble.

Kaiser's rushing offense benefited from excellent blocking by Jesus Rodriguez, Jacob Cota, Pablo Almeda, Kausi Hansen, Ezequiel Del-Villar, Javier Wimbley, and tight end Brian Pacheco-Padilla.

During the regular season, Kaiser averaged 37.4 points per game and allowed 9.7 points per contest.
