Little Big Game Recap

Our little big game was an exciting but heartbreaking event. In the first quarter, SMHS pushed to the lead with a 7 point head-start. The panthers answered San Mateo’s first touchdown with one of their own. The bearcat defense had trouble stopping the running and passing attacks of Burlingame. BHS continued to add 35 more points to lead 42-7 at the end of the first half. After a scoreless second half, the final score remained unchanged. Both teams advanced to the CCS (Central Coast Section) playoffs. San Mateo ended the regular season at 7-3 while Burlingame finished at 6-4.

Once again, the panthers brought their B-game while we brought our A-game to the halftime show with booming spirit. The San Mateo Dance Team and the cheerleaders put on a vibrant performance. The San Mateo marching band executed their piece amazingly, with a cover of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer” along with the Color Guard. They also wowed the crowd with a rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” during which they were joined by the Advanced Dance ensemble.

Despite the unfortunate outcome of the game, the bearcats are hopeful for next year in their continued battle for the Paw and would like to congratulate the varsity football team on advancing to CCS finals for the first time in seven years.
