COUGARS DEFEAT CAPUCHINO

Half Moon Bay took on Capuchino in the night cap of a quint at the CUSD Event Center.  The Cougars set the tone with an 11-0 run to start the game under the hot three point shooting of Patrick Hann.  Eight first quarter turnovers committed by the Cougars and four first half threes by the Mustangs kept Capuchino to within seven at the half and within six mid way through the third quarter.  Half Moon Bay eventually settled in and extended to ten at the end of three and twenty two by the final buzzer.  Spirited play by Sorie Syme off the bench and three resounding dunks by Ethan Menzies sparked the host team.  Menzies led all scorers with 19 points on 9 of 14 shooting and also added 8 rebounds.  The Cougars return to action Tuesday 1/9 hosting Jefferson to begin P.A.L. North conference play.
