The Holy Trinity grad's next two touchdowns came 1:17 apart in the second quarter. First, he caught a ball pitched to him by fellow receiver Devon Bailey and raced down the sideline for the TD. Next, on a play set up by an X-Men interception, Catterall caught a nine-yard pass from Wensley to give his team a 24-9 lead.
