Last year, Kaiser High School's only regular season loss came at the hands of Aquinas by a 9-0 margin. This year, the defending CIF champion Cats turned the tables on the Falcons.
In a rematch on Aug. 30, Kaiser triumphed by a 10-0 score to raise its record to 2-0 in non-league competition. The Cats remained the No. 1-ranked team in the CIF Division 6 football poll.
Kaiser's defense throttled Aquinas the entire way, and the offense was able to cash in a touchdown and field goal in the second quarter for the game's only points.
Trevian Tribble threw a 16-yard TD pass to Dustin Chaidez to lead the way for the Cats.
Tribble ended up completing 9 of 18 passes for 126 yards. Josiah Finnell caught 4 passes for 28 yards, and Javier Wimbley, Robert Keeler, Joseph Glenn, and Brian Pacheco-Padilla also had receptions.
Gabriel Ortiz was the leading ballcarrier with 34 yards in 5 carries.
Ortiz also sparkled on defense, making 7 solo tackles and 4 assisted tackles. Chaidez had 7 tackles and 2 assists, Angel Aguiar had 5 tackles and 1 assist, Zachary Bradley had 4 tackles and 1 assist, and Steven Ceja had 3 tackles and 1 assist.
Avery Taylor recovered a fumble that was caused by Keeler, and Aguiar and Tribble intercepted passes.
Michael Mosqueda kicked a 40-yard field goal and Glenn kicked an extra point.
Kaiser's next game will be at Westminster on Friday, Sept. 6.
