Carlmont soccer loses to San Mateo


Gabriela d'Souza, Staff Writer

Carlmont Varsity soccer players lost 1-0 in their game against San Mateo on Wednesday afternoon, resulting in their fourth loss of the season. Carlmont Varsity is now 5-4-1 in the PAL standings.

San Mateo players started off strong, steadily moving toward the Carlmont goalie, Zack Wooster, and pressuring the back-line as soon as the game commenced.

Gavin Chase, Eric Smith, Han Li and Justin Quan all put forth their best efforts to keep San Mateo away from scoring; but nonetheless San Mateo scored the single goal of the game during the first half and continued to play strong and keep their lead.

Carlmont players, however, had a noticeably better second half and were able to keep their goal safe from the attacking Bearcats.

Unlike last Friday’s game against Burlingame, this game was much more mellow and less eventful but will still impact the team as a whole.

Both Burlingame and Woodside High Schools also lost in their games on Wednesday, therefore not affecting Carlmont’s PAL standings.

Without an enormous amount of effort from every player Carlmont’s Varsity soccer team will be unable to make it to CCS. The team now turns their sights to a honorable win at Woodside this Friday.
