Menlo-Atherton got to play a football game at home for the first time in over a month. The Bears did not disappoint, beating Arroyo Grande 46-13 on Friday night in a nonleague contest on 'Pink Out' night.

The Bears (2-3) scored on their first play from scrimmage after the defense stopped a fake punt try near midfield. Sophomore quarterback Matt MacLeod pitched the ball to wide receiver Troy Franklin, who maneuvered his way through traffic and scored from 42 yards out. Read the story here.
