— That made it 21-0, a mark that was more than enough for CBA's defense. In the first half alone, Pascarella had two tackles for losses, while Keegan O'Hern sacked Wildcats quarterback Dan Ginestro twice.

That intensity slacked a bit in the second half, as the Wildcats put together a pair of scoring drives. Ginestro finished off one drive with a 10-yard scoring pass to Brett Colvin in the third quarter, while Garrett Waldron scored on a one-yard plunge in the final period.

But the Brothers countered both times, Zazzara throwing his third TD pass, a 16-yard strike to Cody Radziewicz and Salter going 25 yards for a TD late in the fourth quarter to ice it. Overall, Salter gained 159 yards on 21 carries to balance out Zazzara’s air numbers.

So the Wildcats finished at 4-5, knowing that Howard, and most of the offensive line, returns in 2013, and hoping that the things it learned this fall will lead to a return to the top next time around.
