Half Moon Bay set the tone with a disciplined attack, recording assists on 8 of their first 10 baskets. On the other end of the court, they covered well in a zone allowing only 6 Westmoor baskets and 30% shooting as they took a 7 point lead into the half. At one point, the deafening home crowd was silenced by a monster block by Sorie Syme. Momentum only shifted back to Westmoor after three perimeter makes by Ram reserve, J Cox at the end of the third/beginning of the fourth quarter. Two hard earned lay-ins by Syme returned the Cougar advantage and decibel level to double digits, whereafter they controlled the ball and the pace of the game to the finish.
High scorers for HMB were Ben McKnight with 16 on 6 of 13 from the field and 3 for 3 from the line and Lukas Meighan with 11 on 5 of 9 shooting.
The Cougars will host Jefferson at 5:30 pm next Wednesday at CUSD as they hope to avenge a 4 point loss against conference leading Jefferson
