Wednesday afternoon the Carlmont JV soccer players beat Menlo-Atherton 3-1 in their seventh league game of the season. Carlmont JV is now 6-0-1 in the PAL standings.

Carlmont started off the scoring when, sophomore, Mitchell Jang received a sublime through ball by, sophomore Graham Godwin, Jang ran onto the pass and slotted home for the Scots.

Carlmont dominated the possession in the first half, with the Bears having little to no opportunities on Carlmont’s goal. Carlmont goalie, Jared Fitzpatrick was only called upon a couple of times to make the big save for the Scots. But, when needed he came up big, blocking the Bears only real scoring opportunity.

Carlmont went up 2-0 when Jang scored another goal off of a redirection on goal that caught the M.A goalie completely on surprise.

It was 3-0 at halftime when Brandon Magpayo navigated his way along the goal line and found Jake Retchless open at the penalty spot. Retchless kept his cool and put the Scots up by three.

With Carlmont in cruise control by halftime Coach Will Stambaugh opted to put in his bench for the second half. The Scots played with an all freshman lineup for the majority of the remainder of the time.

Carlmont’s reserves ended up giving up a late goal, but it was enough for the victory as the Scots won 3-1.

Being in the drivers seat as they are in first place the Scots must now turn their attention to playing Sequoia, the second place team, this Friday.
