Sequoia wins back the Terremere Trophy in a 35-0 romp over Carlmont

There were no doubts in anybody’s mind that Sequoia’s varsity football team deserved to reclaim the Terremere Trophy from Carlmont on Friday night, Nov. 10 at Terremere Field.

The Terremere Trophy, given to the winner between the annual matchup between Carlmont’s and Sequoia’s varsity football teams, was handily won by the Sequoia Cherokees, who ran over the Scots, 35-0. During the game, the Cherokees rushed for a whopping five touchdowns, with three touchdowns for quarterback and captain Mike Taylor, in a one-sided win.

At the start of the game, the teams were pretty even, with Sequoia and Carlmont both punting once. Then, Taylor burst into the end-zone on a QB option play for a 20 yard touchdown run, giving the Cherokees a 7-0 lead.

Sequoia managed to score two more rushing touchdowns before the half, one by Taylor from one yard out and one by running back Dylan Anderson from two yards out.

Carlmont had one chance to put some points on the board before the half too, but their five minute, 61 yard drive culminated with a failed fourth down conversion at Sequoia’s 20 yard line.

In the second half, Sequoia’s momentum continued, with another four yard touchdown run by Taylor and one touchdown run late in the fourth quarter for back-up quarterback Cameron Greenough.

Sequoia finished with a stunning 362 rushing yards and 99 passing yards. Meanwhile, Carlmont had 170 rushing yards and failed to complete one pass.

Carlmont finished at 1-9 overall and 0-5 in the Peninsula Athletic League (PAL) Lake Division, while Sequoia finished at 8-2 overall and 3-2 in the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division.

It turned out to be a disappointing season for Carlmont after considering last year’s outstanding performance, where Carlmont were co-champions of the PAL Lake Division and beat Sequoia in their annual matchup. Despite the loss, Carlmont was missing two star players, Mark Concilla and Diairea James, due to injury.

Meanwhile, the Carlmont frosh-soph team had a much better season, finishing 9-1 overall and winning league. Next year, members of the successful frosh-soph team will be coming to the varsity team.

Despite the loss, Carlmont varsity coach Jason Selli remained optimistic after the game.

“I think that the success with the frosh-soph will be motivating for the younger players coming up,” Selli said. “The juniors will be real hungry and learn from their mistakes, and that’s a nice recipe for success.”
