For the second straight week both HMBHS Cougars football teams won in convincing fashion. This time the Cougars took their high powered offenses and stingy defenses on the road to play the Prospect High Panthers. The varsity team scored early and often en route to a 57-0 shut out. The Cougars led 15 -0 after the 1st quarter and 36-0 at the half. The varsity team played the entire second half with a running clock. QB Gavin Tomberlin threw two touchdown passes to Pablo Gutierrez and Matt Spiegelman. Anthony DeMartini scored two TDs on the ground and Cody James also added a TD on the ground. The Cougars' defense scored twice on an interception return by Chase Hofmann and a fumble recovery in the endzone by Nick Dempsey. The Cougars amassed over 400 yards of offense and allowed less then 100 yards on defense. The special teams unit was led by Ivan DeLeon who was 7 for 7 on extra points. The Cougars improved to 2-0 on the season.
The JV football team also improved to 2-0 with a 38-6 road win at Prospect High. The young Cougars were led by Blaze Dayton who had two rushing touchdowns and Jake Quosig who had a rushing TD and a punt return for a TD. Arron Baird caught a touchdown pass from Jakob Meighen. Sean Fitzgerald kicked a 25 yard field goal and was 5 for 5 on extra points. The young Cougars defense played well all day and allowed only one first down to the Panthers.
Both teams are back home next Friday hosting Los Altos High School. Next Friday's games will be recogonizing our incredible local schools. The JV game will begin at 4:00 and the varsity game will kickoff at 7:00. Both teams hope to have a full house to celebrate our local schools and cheer the Cougars on to victory as they attempt to improve to 3-0.
