Cougars prevail in all time classic ‘Fog Bowl’

  • Rancho's #53 Mihalis Santorineos was "in it to win it" in the first round NCS/CIF playoff game against Windsor! He made an important interception and ran it in for a Cougar touchdown with about 11 minutes on the game clock making the score 37-33. The final score, after the PAT 38-33 Rancho.

Some might say this was Fog Bowl 2.0, others might say it was a matchup between two heavyweight fighters with the intention of killing each other. Rancho Cotate Head Football Gehrig Hotaling would just describe this game as an all-time classic.
