Carlmont’s girls varsity soccer team crushed the San Mateo Bearcats on Jan. 22 with a 4-1 win.

The Lady Scots earned a quick lead in the first half. Senior Soha Said scored against San Mateo’s keeper within the first five minutes of the game.

After back and forth possession between either team, junior Kayla Fong managed to place the ball, unguarded, at minute 20. Just five minutes later, Fong scored another goal for Carlmont.

Fong recognized the strength in her teammates, and was “proud” of the team’s constant improvement on the field.

“We are all committed to getting better. This team never gives up and everyone gives their best effort. We have a lot of talent on the field… exceptional forwards, midfielders, defenders, and an amazing goalie,” said Fong.

Despite offensive skill, the Lady Scots struggled on defense and in turn granted a goal to San Mateo. The first half ended with Carlmont leading 3-1.

The girls had confidence in their ability to outplay the opposing team.

“We knew going into the game that San Mateo was a team that we could handle,” said junior Sage Shamsai. “Nonetheless, we still had the mindset of playing hard and working to improve our game on the field.”

Knowing this, and with a 2-point lead, the Lady Scots began their second half of the game with as much energy as in the first.

In the final moments of the game, junior Tori Linnell brought the score to a final 4-1 at minute 71.

Chemistry is critical to a team’s performance, and it is apparent that the Lady Scots display strength in that area.

“This team is special… we all get along. Not many high school teams can say that. All of us are friends off the field,” said Fong.

After emerging victorious, the girls are optimistic about their upcoming league games.
