After suffering a frustrating 28-24 loss at Sacred Heart Prep last weekend, the Bears can play spoiler in the PAL Bay Division by knocking Terra Nova out of a share of first place. Against SHP, the Bears rushed for a season-high 353 yards, with Cameron Moody leading the way with 145 yards on 14 carries. He also scored on a 47-yard run. Junior Sakalia added 123 yards on five carries, one coming on an 80-yard TD that gave the Bears a 24-21 lead. M-A's Taylor Mashack, CharStyle:>however, was tackled on a fourth-and-goal at the SHP 1-yard line with five minutes remaining in the game.

Menlo (2-1, 5-2) at Woodside (1-2, 1-6), Friday, 7 p.m.

After losing to Jefferson, 14-13, last week for the first time in eight years, the Knights need to rebound against the struggling Wildcats to have a chance at finishing 4-1 in league and moving on to the CCS playoffs. Menlo senior Beau Nichols needs to score one touchdown to tie a school record for career points (242) held by J.B. Barnett. Against Jefferson, Nichols played with a broken bone in his right hand. Despite wearing a cast, Nichols gained 137 yards on 16 carries, scored on runs of one and 67 yards, returned a kickoff 26 yards, caught two passes for 24 yards and broke up a pass on one of his rare defensive plays. Tim Benton caught eight passes for 115 yards.

The Titans need to get back on the winning track with home games coming up against Wilcox and Los Gatos to finish the season. The Titans are coming off a 43-28 loss to host Homestead last weekend, battling back from a 14-0 deficit to tie as Josh Jackson scored on runs of 23 and 25 yards. Gunn quarterback Anthony Cannon threw a 32-yard TD pass to Jackson in the third period to get the Titans to within 30-20, but that was as close as it got.

The Gators can keep their PAL Bay Division title hopes alive by beating the Dons. SHP will go into the game in a three-way tie for first with Burlingame and Terra Nova. The Gators are still averaging 34.7 points a game after rallying to edge M-A, 28-24, last week as quarterback John Geary plunged over from a yard out late in the fourth quarter for the winning points. The game saw the teams combine for 788 total yards, with the Gators gaining 287 on the ground behind Colin Terndrup';s 128 yards on 23 carries.
