Carlmont broke a two-game winning streak with a 19-10 loss against San Mateo at Carlmont on Friday night.

Running back Dominic Blanks was injured at the beginning of the second quarter, and was taken out of the game with an ankle injury. It is unknown what exactly happened.

Coach Marcus Farhad said, “[Dominic] went to the doctors, and they told him he’s going to get an MRI.”

The Scots led off the game with a touchdown by quarterback Matt Stalun in the beginning of the second quarter. Shortly after, Line Latu scored an 85-yard touchdown for San Mateo.

The Bearcats did not convert on the two-point conversion, and Carlmont held their lead, 7-6.

San Mateo scored another touchdown, taking the lead with a score of 13-7. Carlmont battled back, and scored on a 40-yard field goal by Aaron Albaum. By the end of the first half, Carlmont closed the gap with a score of 13-10.

Near the start of the third quarter, San Mateo scored the last touchdown of the game, leaving the score at 19-10.

In the middle of the fourth quarter, running back Willie Te’o was pulled out of the game.

“Willie was [already] hurt, but he sucked it up and stayed in the game. There was just one final hit that knocked all the energy out of him. He knew he needed a break after that.” Coach Farhad said.

With two key players out, the Scots were dependent on their teammates to have their backs.

Junior Sam Boyle said, “We lost two running backs that have carried our offense all season. Our other running backs are going to need to step up [their game] even more.”

With an upcoming bye next week, Carlmont hopes to recover from their bumps and bruises and prepare for their next game against Hillsdale on Oct. 11.
