The Phantoms allowed 197 points overall, an average of just over 15 points per game. At 15.15 Cathedral averaged slightly less than Southeast champion La Mirada who averaged 15.68 in 16 games. Cathedral also picked off 19 passes, and recovered 14 fumbles with a ball hawking defense.
Cathedral, 11-2 overall, advanced all they way to the Southeast Semi Finals before falling to the Matadores due in large part to the defensive schemes of Lance Fauria. The Phantoms always have athletes, but it takes somebody special to bring it all together. This year, on the defensive side, that somebody was DC Lance Fauria. He is our Southeast Division Defensive Coordinator of the Year.
