Varsity Football Earns A Spot in the Elite Eight

The St Rita Varsity Football Team defeated NAC Conference Champion, St Francis Xavier of Burbank, 20-0 on Saturday. The win moved them to the elite eight of the 60 team CYO Football Playoffs. The Raiders play Our Lady of Lourdes, the undefeated champion of the Big East Conference of Los Angeles. That game will be played at Salesian High School at 960 S Soto Street, Los Angeles, CA, 90023-1323. Game time is 2:30 pm.

During the season, most of the offensive damage by St Rita was done in quick strike fashion through the air. In this game, the running of Luca Farroni and a strong defense proved too much for the Knights. The win moves the Raider season record to 15 wins and 1 loss.

Directions from St Rita to Salesian are: 210 Fwy West to the 2 south, to the 5 toward Los Angeles. Exit the 5 at 4th Street. Turn left on to fourth street and then right on Soto Street. At this point, I suggest turning left on Whittier Blvd. Go past the Church on the right (Santa Isabel) and turn right on the dead end street immediately after. Park on that street, or enter the lot at the end of the street. We may be able to park at Santa Isabel at that time of the day.
