Carlmont stands tall with a Homecoming win against Jefferson on Friday night, regaining their status after losing last year’s homecoming game.

Jefferson led off the game with a touchdown within the first minute of the game. They held their lead 7-0 throughout the first quarter.

Carlmont tied up the game in the middle of the second quarter with a touchdown. Jefferson had a quick recovery and scored another touchdown, regaining their lead 14-7.

Carlmont responded with a 56-yard passing play for their second touchdown, and with a 2 point conversion took the lead 15-14.

Jefferson charged back only to have a field goal attempt blocked late in the second quarter.

With three seconds remaining in the first half, sophomore Sami Makaafi charged down the field for a 55-yard touchdown, extending Carlmont’s lead 22-14.

Jefferson scored in the third quarter, but was still down 22-20 after Carlmont blocked the extra point.

Carlmont’s running game went to work and scored again on a 26-yard run from Makaafi, which was his second touchdown of the game, early in the fourth quarter, advancing their lead 29-20.

Carlmont added one last touchdown late in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach, ending the game with a final score of 36-20.

“It was a well played game.” kicker Aaron Albaum said.

Makaafi was brought up from the JV team before the game and ended up scoring two of the five touchdowns.

“It felt stunning,” Makaafi said. “It was a great experience [playing on varsity].”

The Scots were fired up after the game along with hundreds of cheering fans. The senior players on the team couldn’t be happier that they had won their last homecoming game.

“It’s a bittersweet [ending],” said captain Tristan Gasperian.

Many of the seniors are going to miss their fans.

“[I’m going to] miss the overall school spirit and playing under the lights,” said Gasperian. “I [look] forward to seeing everyone there, like the Screaming Scots.”

“I always [look] forward to the people that are going there,” said quarterback Matt Stalun.

The seniors were heavyhearted about having to say goodbye to high school football and all the friends they have made along the way, but are pleased to say they won their last homecoming game.

Carlmont’s next game is away at Kings Academy on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7pm.
