Menlo-Atherton had enough offense but not enough defense and suffered a 27-14 non league football loss on Saturday in Atherton. For the perennial power Wildcats, it was their third straight season-opening win over the Bears.

Los Gatos rushed for 248 yards while its defense came up with four fumble recoveries to hold off the Bears, who opened their season a week ago with a 43-7 victory.

Menlo-Atherton quarterback Willy Fonua was 14 of 31 for 220 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. Evan Perkins caught six passes for 89 yards and senior running backs Cameron Moody and Taylor Mashack combined for 221 rushing yards as the Bears showed improvement over their two previous losses to Los Gatos.
