Football: Woodside hosts Menlo Friday; M-A hosts Hillsdale Saturday

 

The Menlo School football team kept the faith and now has a chance to capture at least a share of the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division championship.

Menlo and HMB are tied for first place heading into Friday's final PAL Ocean games. Menlo (7-1, 3-1) plays at Woodside (5-3, 1-3) while Half Moon Bay (7-1, 3-1) hosts South San Francisco. (2-6, 1-3). Both games are at 7 p.m.

"We're trying to prepare for Woodside like we would for any other game, check off the boxes on offense and defense,'' said Menlo running back Charlie Ferguson, who has more than 1,100 yards rushing on the season. "But there is definitely a buzz among the seniors, a little extra energy.''

Menlo-Atherton will try to complete a perfect season in the PAL Bay Division when it hosts Hillsdale on Saturday at 2 p.m.

"It's a fun time for M-A, getting a chance to play for an outright league championship,'' Menlo-Atherton coach Adhir Ravipati said.

The Bears (6-2, 4-0) are on a six-game winning streak.
