Varsity Boys Football
Marin Catholic 42, Menlo-Atherton 3
Date of competition: Saturday, September 5, 2015
Adhir Ravipati made his debut as head coach of the Menlo-Atherton football team on Saturday, but the Bears couldn't present their new coach with a victory as host Marin Catholic rolled to a 42-3 nonleague triumph. The Bears, 3-8 a year ago, managed just 148 total yards -- 29 in the air and 119 on the ground. The Bears had 41 total plays and made only seven first downs in the tough season opener.
Junior Jordan Mims led the rushing game with 57 yards on five carries and finished the game with 72 all-purpose yards. Junior Stavro Papadakis added 44 yards on 17 carries and completed a pair of passes for 17 yards while sharing QB duties with senior Ben Spindt. The two, however, combined for just four completions in 14 attempts. Senior Justin Friedsam caught three passes for 22 yards. Defensively, junior Christian Wiseman and senior Jack Gray each had eight tackles.
