HALF MOON BAY DEFEATS TERRA NOVA

Hunger.  Half Moon Bay delighted the record crowd at the CUSD Event Center in its rival game against visiting Terra Nova by showing it.  Its pressure defense and intensity showed throughout the contest.  The Cougars extended to a 43-19 advantage at the mid-way mark as it shot 70% in the first half and 62% for the game.  Ethan Menzies dominated the offense with 24 points on 11 for 14 shooting including first half monster dunks from each of a break away, an alley oop and over a defending Tiger.  His double-double on the night was complimented with 10 rebounds, 3 blocked shots and 2 steals.  The Half Moon Bay defense was suffocating in the last three quarters, giving up only 3 field goals to Terra Nova and having 12 of its 15 steals during these sets.  The Tigers were held to a 24% from the field on 8 of 34 shooting overall.  If you missed it or want to see it again, the game replay will be telecast on Comcast Home Network at 8pm Saturday and 2pm Sunday both on cable and online.
