CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte Catholic kept its undefeated season intact Friday, scoring 40 unanswered points to defeat Berry Academy 40-14.

The Cardinals got the scoring started early in the first quarter on a 71-yard touchdown pass. From that point on, it was all Cougars. Catholic found the endzone with a 16-yard Jaret Anderson touchdown and followed it up with a 43-yard touchdown pass from John Walton to receiver Jonathan Newman.

When the teams switched ends to begin the second quarter, Charlotte Catholic’s Jaret Anderson earned his second touchdown of this night, this time a one-yard plunge to give the Cougars a 19-7 lead after the second missed extra point of the game. On the first possession of the second half, Walton again found Newman for a 14-yard touchdown, extending Catholic’s lead to 33-7.

Charlotte Catholic visits Harding for their second conference game of the season next week. Berry returns home to face the undefeated South Meck Sabres.
