Cougars scorch Vikings 48-7

The weather was not the only thing blazing on Friday, as the HMBHS Cougars scorched the Palo Alto High Vikings with a 48-7 win. Facing a delay in the start of the game due to the excessive heat, the Cougars started fast, racking up 4 touchdowns in the 1st quarter. Chase Hoffman had the first 2 TDs of the game, with runs of 3 and 2 yards. Gavin Tomberlin then capped the 1st quarter scores with 2 passing TD’s to Hayden Von Almen and Tristan Hofmann. As the game progressed, the offense continued to have great field position to start each drive, gaining 324 yards and a 83% 3rd down conversion rate. The stellar Cougar defense held Palo Alto to 227 total yards, and a paltry 23% 3rd down conversion rate. Jonathan Carrillo had a fantastic game, logging 5 tackles and a key sack to stop a drive. Palo Alto had only 5 completed passes on 19 attempts, most of which were deep passes that showed signs of desperation to make something happen against the stifling coverage and front pressure from the Cougar defense all game. As the game progressed, the Cougar running attack wore down Palo Alto, with Chase Hoffman ending any momentum recovery by the Vikings with a 30 yard TD run in the 2nd quarter, and adding 2 more rushing TDs in the 3rd quarter. Ronan Spiegelman came in at dive back to secure the win, rushing for 28 yards on 5 carries.

The Rocky Perry Players of the Game:
Offense:  #21 Senior-Chase Hofmann
Defense:  #13 Senior-Sean Fitzgerald
ST:  #21 Senior-Chase Hofmann
Scout:  #68 Sophomore-Bobby Lester


The JV Cougars suffered their 2nd defeat of the season, going down to the Palo Alto Vikings 39-8. Turnovers by the offense killed the early momentum for the Cougars, but the defense played with a lot of resilience and pride despite the early deficit from playing on their side of the field for much of the game. The lone score for the Cougars was pass from quarterback, Cade Duncan, connecting with slot, Sean Nugent, on a seam route. The Cougars elected to go for 2 points, and the attempt was successful with Duncan connecting with Nugent once again.

Please help us in congratulating this week's Community Cougar, Team Mom, Julie Baird.  Julie handles all communications for our football program as well as organizes team meals for our players.  Julie is an HMBHS graduate (class of '92) whose husband, Dave, played for the Cougars (class of '89) as well as her oldest son, Sean (class of '17). Her youngest son, Arron, is currently a senior on the team. 


The Cougars have their first home game of the season coming up on Friday night against  Capuchino High School. Capuchino is also 2-0 on the season, so this will be a great match-up. JV starts at 5:00 pm and the Varsity will kick off at 7:30 pm.

cougars win 2017 season kickoff

The HMBHS Cougars have kicked off the 2017 season with a decisive 63-7 victory over Saratoga High. Starting fast and keeping the momentum going strong throughout, the Cougars excelled in all areas of the game. Offensively, the team gained 368 yards, splitting 162 yards passing and 206 yards rushing. Gavin Tomberlin got things going in the 1st quarter with a 8 yard TD run. He had another TD run in the 3rd quarter, and threw for 162 yards on 7 completions, with no interceptions, including a spot on TD pass to Hayden Von Alman in the 3rd quarter. Chase Hoffman had 3 TD runs as well, leading the Cougars in scoring while gaining 41 yards on 7 carries. Tristan Hoffman and Ronan Spigelman also added TD runs in the 2nd half. Jake Quosig had a fantastic all-around game, carrying the ball for 8 yards while catching 2 passes for 80 yards.

Big plays on the defensive side of the ball were also on order, keeping the Falcons to negative rushing yards and out of the endzone till the last series of the game. Leading the defense was freshman Tristan Hoffman, who along with 4 tackles had 1 sack and a forced fumble, ending up with the ball in his hands on a great strip tackle. Juan Vasquez was also a fixture in the Falcon’s backfield with 1 sack and 2 tackles for loss. All together, the defense had 5 sacks, forced 2 fumbles, and kept the Falcon’s offense sputtering the entire game.

Having a career day was Dylan Williams. Not only was he a perfect 7 for 7 on PATs, but he also was 2 for 2 on FG attempts, and ran the ball in for a 2 point conversion on the first TD of the game.

The JV Cougars got off to a slow start to the 2017 season with a 28-40 loss to the Saratoga Falcons JV squad. The Cougars went into the half down 6-34. The solo passing score of the half was from the arm of quarterback, Cade Duncan, connecting with slot back, Connor Quosig.
 
The young Cougars squad executed much better in the 2nd half, outscoring the Falcons 22-6. Duncan connected with slot back, Sean Nugent, for one score and wide receiver, Oz Monroy, on another, finishing the day with his 3rd passing touchdown. Connor Quosig took a pitch early in the 4th quarter for his 2nd score of the day. Quosig and Nugent also capped all scoring with rushing in for a pair of 2-point conversions. The 2nd half push was not enough for the victory, however, as the young Cougars fell to the Falcons.

Homecoming Game A Winner


The varsity football team completed their PAL Ocean division season with a 35-25 win over South San Francisco on Friday night in front of a packed Homecoming crowd at John Francis Field. The win improved the Cougars record to 8-1, 4-1 and with the win, HMB secured a share of the division title. Although HMB found themselves down 12-7 in the first quarter, the Cougars were in control throughout the contest. Chase Hofmann returned to the lineup and scored 3 touchdowns, the first one giving hMB a 7-0 lead. SSF was playing with nothing to lose and after a kickoff return for a touchdown to make the score 7-6, the Warriors covered an onside kick and turned it into a brief lead.

Before halftime Gavin Tomberlin connected with Hayden Von Almen for a touchdown and the Cougars held a 21-12 lead going into the 3rd quarter.

Cougars Defeated By Knights

It was an exciting but unfortunately disappointing Friday evening at The King's Academy as our varsity football team suffered its first defeat of the 2016 season. The Cougars battled the Knights all night long but were unable to overcome 3 turnovers as TKA defeated HMB by the score of 49-35. Dom Padua got the Cougars on the scoreboard early with a touchdown run but TKA answered right back with a TD to tie the game at 7-7. The two teams answered each other touchdown for touchdown with Johnny Carrillo and Jake Quosig scoring touchdowns for HMB and the score was 21-21. TKA scored two TDs before halftime to take a 35-21 lead. In the 3rd quarter Quosig scored again and added a 2pt. conversion to cut the lead to 35-29. In the 4th quarter Padua scored again but a blocked extra point kept the game tied at 35-35. TKA added two more touchdowns in the 4th quarter and HMB could not answer. The loss left HMB's record at 7-1, 3-1 going into next week's Homecoming game against South San Francisco. A win next week will assure the Cougars of at least a share of the Ocean Division title.

The JV team overcame 3 turnovers and a sloppy 3 quarters of offensive football to win by the score of 7-6. The defense played solid all day giving up one big play which resulted in a TKA touchdown before the half. The young Cougars stuffed the Knights in the second half and took the lead on Blake Schmieder's 4th quarter touchdown. The defense finished the game with an interception by Oz Munroy which was HMB's third take away of the game. The win improved HMB's JV record to 3-4-1, 2-2.

Next week the Cougars face the Warriors of South San Francisco High in their final league game of the season. Next week is also Homecoming which will culminate a week of activities.

After some questionable calls on the HMB defense, Sequoia scored again with 30 seconds left in the game to take a 40-35 lead. The Cougars' chances seemed slim, but on this Pumpkin Festival weekend the spirit of the great pumpkin was in the air. Sequoia kicked off and the ball went out of bounds at mid-field. After a pass to Hayden Von Almen moved the ball to the Sequoia 35 yard line, HMB pulled out the hook and ladder play with Von Almen catching the ball and lateraling to Quosig who ran it down to the 10 yard line with 11 seconds left, Tomberlin then hit Quosig with a TD pass to give HMB the lead with 5 seconds left.

Varsity Season Not Over

Both of the Half Moon Bay Cougars football teams completed their regular season on a cold football Friday at Tigers Field.
