Half Moon Bay 8

Sacred Heart Prep 3

Ryan Harrington started on the mound for the Cougars and he was on the top of his game.

Half Moon Bay broke the scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth as Aidan Vazquez drew a leadoff walk, which was followed by a Coleman Colucci RBI double. Colucci wound up stealing home after William Moffitt got into a rundown. Tanner Bye scored on an RBI double by Liam Harrington. Harrington and David Nieves both scored on a single from Kai Zanette to make it 5-0 Cougars and that was all they would need.
