Half Moon Bay faced Saratoga in the semi-finals of the Warriors Nor-Cal Invitational's white bracket, defeating the Falcons 74-62.  The Cougars showed their depth with 11 team members scoring and the bench contributing a season high 32 points.  Leading the way for HMB was Ethan Menzies with 16 points on 7 for 8 shooting and 2 for 2 from the line.  He added 15 boards.  Equaling the scoring output was Danny Mack who also contributed 16 through tough inside play on 7 for 9 shooting from the field and 2 of 3 from the line.  While play was slowed by a season high 52 free throws taken by both sides, the team's 74 point output was encouraging as it moves to the Championship game Saturday at 6pm against the winner of the late St Mary's Stockton-Los Gatos game.
