The Scots went down with a hard loss against the Mills Vikings on Friday night with a final score of 36-10.

The Scots scored a field goal by kicker Aaron Albaum on the opening drive of the game.

The Vikings respond with a touchdown, taking the lead.

The Scots came back with a touchdown by Yancey Portis in the last few minutes of the first quarter, ending the quarter with the lead 10-7.

The Vikings took back the lead halfway through the second quarter with two quick touchdowns.

With a minute left in the second quarter, the Vikings scored another touchdown and a two-point conversion, advancing their lead 29-10.

The Vikings kicked off the third quarter with another touchdown that ended up being the final touchdown to be scored in  the game.

The rest of the game became a defensive battle with a final score of 36-10 Vikings.

“Defensive did a great job in the second half,” said Coach Marcus Farhad. “The offensive can’t sputter and only score 10 points. We needed a finish, and that’s what we have to work on this week.”

The players were bummed about the outcome of the game.

“It was disappointing,” said Dakota Reagan (number four). “We came back in the end, but we [just] couldn’t get the ball in the end zone.”

“We just couldn’t score when we had to,” said junior Sam Boyle. “They were finding holes in our defense.”

Varsity plans on coming out strong next week for their last game of the season against Sequoia.

“Sequoia is a rivalry for our kids, so we don’t really have to motivate them,” Coach Farhad said. “They’re really fired up. We need to work on their focus.”

With the season coming to its end, most of the team is happy with the outcome of their season.

“I love being out here with my friends,” said Reagan. “We give everything for the team. I love it.”

The Scots play their last game next Friday, Nov. 15 against Sequoia at 7 p.m.
