with health benefits as a main issue. In
June, the Board of Trustees adopted a
budget anticipating no salary increases
and a 2 percent increase in health care

Defense seals Terra Nova victory

By Nathan Mollat

While the Terra Nova offense gets a lot of attention, the Tigers’
defense flies under the radar.
Except for this week as they absorbed the questions following
last week’s 41-28 loss to King’s Academy. The defense got off to
a rough start Friday afternoon, as Menlo-Atherton took a quick
14-0 lead just 7:47 into the first quarter.
But the Tigers stabilized, held the Bears to just one more score
and then sealed a 31-21 win when linebacker Jeremy Leaver
intercepted a Willy Fonua pass and returned it 53 yards for the
final nail in the Bears’ coffin.
“I was doing what coach taught me. Just watch the receiver and
when he puts his hands up, put my hands up,” Leaver said.
The fact he came away with the pick at all was a miracle. There
were about four players in a small space when the pass was
thrown and it almost seemed to catch Leaver by surprise. He bob-
bled it briefly — he was playing with a sprained right thumb —
but corralled it and then got a wall of blockers to escort him to the
end zone.
“Lurking in the cupboards, there’s a pretty damn good defense
that gives up yardage but not a lot of points,” said Terra Nova
coach Bill Gray of his defense.
Terra Nova (3-1 PAL Bay, 5-3 overall) gave up a lot of yardage
— and points — last weekend, but held Menlo-Atherton (1-3, 2-
6) in relative check. The Bears managed only 236 yards of
offense, with 152 of that coming in the first half. They had nine
first downs in the first half, but only five in the second. Of the 21
points allowed, only 14 came from the offense as Menlo-Atherton
defensive back Taylor Mashack scooped up a fumble and
returned it 25 yards on the first play from scrimmage.
In fact, Menlo-Atherton struck twice in the first quarter before

Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert
weighed in earlier this year, riling up the
See MONSTERS, Page 20 gaming community by stating that due to

form, and are much more akin to sports and
other games. After thousands of comments
from the on-line gaming community, he
entered into something of a dialogue on the
subject; however, his original statement
echoes the most prominent arguments
against the label.
It is true you experience a video game dif-
ferently than any other art form; after all,
exploring a pre-rendered, interactive world is
very different from listening to music or
watching a film. However, this argument is a
double-edged sword, and points just as
strongly toward the perception of video
games as an art form. Video games offer a
unique style of immersion impossible with
any other medium. As games become more
and more layered, there are ever-increasing
ways for the player to access the piece.
Games can be speed-run in an hour or rel-
ished for more than 40. A player gets to
decide the depth at which he or she will
access the game — search far and wide for
every unlockable item and quest, or take the
most linear path to the ending. The record
for a speed-run of Nintendo’s “The Legend
