Football: Thomas Duarte is a Mater Dei hero [Video]
Alemany knew exactly what Mater Dei does with receiver Thomas Duarte. The Monarchs throw the ball up and dare anyone to prevent the 6-foot-3 Duarte from getting it.
Duarte ended up with five catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns on Friday night in a 53-42 thriller.
Afterward, when he and Coach Bruce Rollinson were reminded of the four close, hard-fought Pac-5 quarterfinal games, each responded with how wonderful it is to be part of the Pac-5 Division.
