JR. GREMLIN CARDINAL

The La Cañada Gladiator Cardinal team arrived in Temple City ready to play the Rams last Sunday morning. The offense drove the ball effectively behind quarterbacks Noah Kim and Andrew VanGinkel.

The offensive line of Julian Martinez, Connor McGoldrick, Ian Goodstein , Kyle Ramirez, Jake George, Henry Alvarez, Miles Haxton, and Collin Saydah had a near perfect game, keeping the Rams well behind the line of scrimmage and opening up large holes for running backs Will McConnell, Bobby Gazmarian, Kudzai Kachingwe and Myles Webb. Both Gazmarian and Webb had impressive touchdown runs. Quarterback Kim also scored on the receiving end of a trick pass-play.

Defensively, the Gladiators were the immovable obstruction allowing only one big play the entire game. The Rams were forced to punt on all other possessions. Standout defensive back Jake George had two pass deflections and a near interception.

Dylan McGoldrick, Carson Oakland and Tom McConnell also played impressively in the defensive backfield. The defensive lineman were again impressive this game with backfield sacks by Martinez, VanGinkel and Connor McGoldrick. Representing the linebackers and always around the ball was Will McConnell.

Players of the game were Noah Kim and Kudzai Kachingwe. Last week’s players of the game were Myles Webb and Connor McGoldrick. Great job, Gladiators.

Next up for the Cardinal team are the Pico Rivera Dons next Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. at La Cañada High School.
