Eugene Joseph Goodreault III, Staff Writer

Miramonte lost to their arch-rival Campolindo last Friday at home 35-14 in an offensive shootout.

Both teams scored in the first half. However, it was Campolindo who made the adjustments and limited Miramonte to only one touchdown in the second half while their offense kept rolling.

The game was rowdy from the start as fans from both schools came to support. The Cougars took control of the game at first by scoring two touchdowns; a 48-yard strike from Brett Stephens ‘13’ to Andrew Zolintakis ‘14 which resulted into a touchdown and an 8-yard scoring toss to Phillip Rei ‘14.

Miramonte then settled down and scored a touchdown on their next drive on a 4-yard run from Marshall Duetz ‘13. The Cougars responded by scoring another touchdown to make the score 21-14. Right before the end of the first half though, Miramonte switched the momentum into their favor on a 68-yard pass play from Nick Sheehan ‘13  to Zati Williams ‘13.

However, this momentum did carry on to the next half. Campolindo went to the run and stuck with it. Stephens changed the game with a 78- yard rushing touchdown and from there the Cougars never looked back. Nicky Aikawa ‘13 who ran for 117 yards, also contributed to two touchdowns in the second half.

Campolindo remains undefeated in league, while Miramonte has yet to win one league game.

“It was a really disappointing loss. At this point, we just need to sort things out and get back on track,” said Will Fuller ‘14.

Miramonte faces their other cross town rival Acalanes this Friday away at 7 p.m. Make sure to come out and support.
