Half Moon Bay started the game out strong with four goals in the first quarter. Priory's strong defense held the Cougars at only two goals in second and one in the third.

Highlighting the second quarter was a penalty shot from lefty Bobby Simmons. Ending the third quarter in a man-down situation, it was crucial to win the final sprint. Feeling the sense of urgency, sophomore Wyatt Brians won the sprint and immediately the Cougars got their groove back to score three goals and tie the game, 10-10, at the end of the fourth.

In overtime, Half Moon Bay fell to the power outside shots from Priory and ultimately lost the game. Bobby Simmons and Myles Rippberger led the Cougars with three goals each, followed by Kai Guevara and Elijah Lurie with two each, and Pete Hessen with one.

St. Francis, Morgan Hill 43

Half Moon Bay moved to 8-1 with their third win over a powerful West Catholic Athletic League opponent.

The Cougars played their best game of the year, making few mistakes, playing consistently stingy defense both at the perimeter and in the paint, and playing their trademark cutting and passing motion offense.

Five players tallied at least 8 points, and sophomore Drew Dorwin finished with 21. He crushed any hope of a late St. Francis comeback making 6 of 7 second-half shots including his final three treys.
