The Lady Scots were bittersweet on Thursday when the rain caused the game to be postponed until Friday.

“It’s kind of a bummer, but we get an extra day to practice and prepare,” said junior Gabriella Pons.

The game, originally planned to be at Sequoia, was then transferred to Carlmont. It must have been the home advantage that led Carlmont to a shutout win, making their season record 4-0.

The Sequoia Cherokees ended the game with 17 runs scored against them as the Lady Scots dominated the field.

Carlmont sophomore Mariko Kondo was player of the game as she finished with two for four and two doubles.

The stats were spread fairly evenly as seniors Taylor Yzaguirre and Shawna McDonough, sophomore Mariko Kondo, and freshman Jacey Phipps each gained one run. Kondo, Phipps, and junior Christy Peterson lit it up with two hits each, giving many players a time to shine. Peterson managed to steal two bases, considering Sequoia was not able to keep up.

Junior Rebecca Faulkner was starting pitcher and stayed in the whole game. She was on fire with six strikeouts; superior over Sequoia and leaving them hopeless.

The Lady Scots await Tuesday’s home game against Burlingame, who is prepared to face them despite their victory-less season thus far.
