Sacred Heart 55

Half Moon Bay 40

The Cougars (6-5, 3-0) played a resilient game against a Sacred Heart Prep team ranked No. 2 in all of the Central Coast Section.

Hitting on their first five 3s, the Gators charged out to a big early lead, but, after that initial surge, Half Moon Bay would play them even in the final three quarters including an inspired third quarter when they clamped down on defense limiting the Gator scoring to just seven points.

Scoring was at a premium, as Cougar sharpshooters struggled to hit open shots and the SHP interior defense was tough. Owen Wooliever connected from beyond the arc three times and led the Cougars with 11.

The next game is Friday at Terra Nova.
