Terra Nova-Half Moon Bay highlights rivalry week for San Mateo County

TODAY

Half Moon Bay at Terra Nova, 7 p.m.
Easily the most intriguing matchup of rivalry week, the PAL Ocean champs, Half Moon Bay, make the short trip to Terra Nova, the PAL Bay champs, for the annual Skull Game. Both teams ran the table in league play and have locked up Central Coast Section playoff berths. Half Moon Bay stunned a favored Terra Nova team 34-10 in last year’s game.

Menlo-Atherton at Woodside, 7 p.m.
M-A is coming off a 35-0 beatdown at the hands of Terra Nova in a game that decided the PAL Bay Division and looks to get back on track before the playoffs start up. Woodside started the year strong, but has dropped three straight. M-A won last year’s game 34-27.

Sequoia at Carlmont, 7 p.m.
The visiting Cherokees have lost four straight, giving up at least 36 points in each of those losses. Carlmont had a chance to wrap up the PAL Lake last week with a win, but lost to El Camino 31-7. Sequoia won last year’s matchup 20-14.

Mills at Capuchino, 7 p.m.
The Battle of the Strip has extra meaning for Paea Dauwe and Capuchino this year, as the Mustangs can force a three-way tie atop the PAL Lake Division with a win. Mills, which lost to Cap 28-0 last season, is trying to spoil that plan.

FRIDAY

Aragon at Hillsdale, 11 a.m.
In the Battle of the Fleas, the visiting Dons will have a chance to bounce back after their heartbreaking loss to Half Moon Bay last week. Hillsdale is just 3-6, but has shown the ability to score in bunches. Aragon has owned the series of late.
