Menlo-Atherton had its best statistical game of the football season, but it still didn's matter as host Terra Nova handed the Bears a 49-27 loss and kept them winless in PAL Bay Division action on Friday night in Pacifica.

Terra Nova (5-0, 6-3) clinched the division crown despite being losing nearly every statistical category to the Bears ((0-4, 1-8). Menlo-Atherton remarkably led in time of possession, 32:44 to 14:05; rushed for a season-high 370 yards; finished with a season-best 495 total yards, and scored more points than in any other game this season.

Junior Sakalia rushed 18 times for 113 yards and scored on runs of 22 and five yards with Stephen Fifita added 87 yards on 12 carries. Quarterback Jonathan Hoech even contributed 125 passing yards on 10 of 14 completions while Michael Brown caught four passes for 67 yards.
