Skull game

The Terra Nova Tigers traveled to Half Moon Bay to take the skull in the biggest rival game of the year on Friday. Clay Lambert / Review

The Half Moon Bay High School varsity football team might be able to blame the fog for losing the diminutive Terra Nova halfback Zachery Perez as he skittered left, right and through the Cougar defense on Friday night. But that doesn’t explain how a 6-4, 205-pound quarterback with a misnomer for a name was able to run with abandon on the road.

In short, Mason Mini came up big.
