Junior Bijan Khalili fights for the ball against a South City defender.

The boys varsity soccer team played their final home game of the season on Feb. 18. Unfortunately for the Scots, senior night ended with a 2-1 victory for South San Francisco (South City) High School.

Goals were scored early in the first half of the game. Both teams proved to possess strong offensive members and equally capable defenders.

Junior Spencer Stewart made the first goal of the night, assisted by senior Fabricio Custodio, just minutes into the game. The Scots did not enjoy their lead for long, however, as South City redeemed themselves with a goal by minute eight.

Despite hard work from its offensive players, Carlmont could not place another goal. Communication lacked and, as a result, passes were repeatedly intercepted by South City defenders.

“[South City] came out strong,” said junior Brent Jang. “We weren’t prepared for their chaotic playing style.”

Both teams quickly became aggressive in play and controversial calls made by the referees only added to the growing tension which ended the first half.

Carlmont’s frantic play in the second half led to their inability to score, even when South City’s keeper was down on the field and out of the goal.

“As the game progressed, aggression increased,” said junior Natalie Stainton.

South City placed a second goal at minute 66, breaking the tie and bringing the score up 2-1 South City.

Shortly after the goal, senior Nathan Rosenthal was awarded a yellow card for pursuing the ball while under the possession of South City’s goalkeeper.

Carlmont was unable to score in the final minutes of the game, securing South City’s victory.

Despite their loss, the Scots recognized their senior players, who will be leaving high school in a few short months.

Custodio said, “I hope to try out for my college team. If not, I will continue to play… I have too much love for this beautiful sport.”
