With Woodside leading 3-1 after the first quarter, Carlmont bounced back in a nail-biter game with an end victory 11-10.

With the season ending in the near future, the game on Thursday, October 11 was a great victory for the Scots. Both teams exchanged points for points, leaving the crowd astonished with the outcome of 5-4 before the second quarter had ended. Carlmont and Woodside both had a strong defense which made gaining a lead tough.

According to the Carlmont JV coach Molly McNinch, defense led to the win.

“I think our defense was really strong and we were really great at getting back into the game,” McNinch said. “We’re getting a lot better with setting up as well.”

Woodside had struggled with offense and called a timeout while Carlmont had a 6-4 lead. Both coaches gave quick speeches to the motivated players and started the last quarter with another goal to Carlmont.

During the first couple of minutes, determined Woodside players caught up with a score of 8-7.

With three minutes left on the clock, freshman Jessica Conley, sophomore Sofia Sharron, and junior Nisha Marino together put five points more on the board and brought the win during the last quarter.

Woodside JV Coach added that although it was a tough game they had worked well together changing things up in hope of a win.

“I think our team needed to spread out, we have a tough time in a smaller pool because we have played in such a big pool,” the Woodside Coach said. “We were just a cluster together and just need to work on safer passes.”

Molly McNinch had added that her team has worked hard and is continuing to work with new players.

“Both teams did a really great job today and we will continue to get stronger,” McNinch said.

Next week, the JV team is looking to make adjustments to end the season strongly.

The highest scoring player of the game, sophomore Sofia Sharron, said, “Being aware of passes and becoming more open would strengthen the team to gain a bigger lead in the next game.”
