On Sept. 26,2012, the Carlmont High School Scots dominated the Half Moon Bay High School Cougars, with varsity winning 10-7 and junior varsity winning 11-3.

Varsity set up successful offense and defense which kept the Cougars from scoring only seven goals.

“We want to expect to lose and [that] the team you’re playing is the hardest team,” said varsity player Simeon Giverts.

During the third quarter in the JV game, Maxwell Dobson made a counter attack goal. A counter attack goal is when the ball is caught by the goalie from an attempted score and a player takes the ball from the goalie and makes a score.

Dobson succeeded in making the counter attack goal after two attempts and added a point for Carlmont. The score then became 8-2.

“It’s less pressure…[I] don’t have to worry about defenders-  Just you and the goalie,” said Dobson about the pressure when making the counter attack goal.

Coach Galvez’s response  was, “[The players] know to capitalize on scoring opportunities – score a second time if you can’t make the first one.”
