CSM beats Cabrillo, enters Coast play on high note
January 06, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

After closing out non-conference play with an easy 72-52 victory over visiting Cabrillo College on Saturday, College of San Mateo’s women’s basketball team will open Coast North play on Wednesday (Jan. 8) at conference favorite City College of San Francisco at 5 p.m. CCSF (12-3)  is currently ranked No. 8 in the state and defeated Mission, 88-78, on Saturday.

The Bulldogs (8-6) scored the first seven points against Cabrillo, including five by sophomore guard Kay Cooper (out of South San Francisco High), and never looked back. It was 22-5 mid-way through the period and 40-22 at the half. 

Cooper led the Bulldogs with 17 points, 11 in the first half. Five of her six field goals were three-pointers. Freshman guard Mia Maffei (from El Camino High) had her best game with 14 points, coming off the bench. That included five points to key a CSM 11-point run near the end that killed any lingering Seahawks comeback hopes. Her previous high game was 11 points against Solano in November.   

Sophomore forward Kate Larson (Notre Dame Belmont) added eight points. Season scoring leader McKenna Hilton (Half Moon Bay) had seven points. Her average is 11.7 and she remains the only San Mateo player scoring in double figures.

CSM will play at San Jose CC (1-12) on Friday before hosting Las Positas (7-8) in the conference home opener on Jan. 15 (5:30 p.m.).

Menlo Oaks wrestling places second

A full day of wrestling came to a close inside Haynes-Prim Pavilion last Saturday afternoon with the No. 18 Menlo grapplers earning a second place team finish and saw seven different wrestlers place in the highly-competitive tournament.

The solid performance resulted in three Oaks taking home top-billing in their respective weight class including: Troy Lakin (125 pounds), Jason Ladd (149 pounds) and Eric Lopez (165 pounds).

The No. 1 wrestler in the nation at 165 pounds, Lopez, was dominant once again on Saturday, posting a perfect 4-0 record which included a pin and a major decision. In his first match of the afternoon, Lopez pinned San Francisco State’s AJ Simon at the 2:11 mark. He followed that performance up with a 16-2 major decision over Zack Dawson and then earned a close 3-2 decision win over Southern Oregon University’s Garrett Urrutia to put him in the finals.

In the finals, Lopez faced off with Vince Aboytes (SFSU) and scored early and often to earn a 9-3 decision and take home top honors at 165 pounds.

Menlo School 3, Pacific Grove 1

The Menlo boys varsity soccer team (2-2-2 overall) defeated Pacific Grove 3-1 to wrap up their Monterey trip.

Menlo started the game strong and were quickly ahead. Senior captain John Strong received a piercing through ball from junior midfielder Peter Rosston and confidently slotted it by the Pacific Grove keeper.

A few minutes later sophomore striker Will Chisholm flicked on a throw-in that fell to fellow sophomore Matt Joss in the box. Joss held off his defender and beat the Breaker goalie to put Menlo two up just fifteen minutes in.

The Knights put the game away after Chisholm was fouled in the box and the ref awarded Menlo a penalty kick in the second half. Justin Wang stepped up and calmly slotted the ball past the keeper to put the game out of reach.

“We have a very young team but our performances the last two games show that we are starting to come together at the right time,” said second year coach Marc Kerrest via email. “It is difficult to single anyone out as the entire team put in a solid performance today.” The Knights open league play Wednesday January 8th at home against Pinewood.
