Menlo-Atherton High football players walked silently to its post-game meeting in Aragon High's south end zone. They didn't look happy.
The Bears beat the host Dons, 48-35, and were never really in danger of losing, though Aragon scored three touchdowns in the span of 3:16 of the fourth quarter to make it interesting.
Menlo-Atherton coach Adhir Ravipati reminded his team how dominant they were the first 43 minutes of the contest and how poorly they played the final five minutes. It was a lesson learned.
