Girls Water Polo dominates San Mateo

Yesterday the San Mateo girls varsity water polo visited Carlmont for the Scots 9th game.

Earlier in the season th eLady Scots battle the same team at thier home, winning with an effort of 22-1.

The Scots were not expecting too much of a game, as there almost was no game. San Mateo joined the peninsula atheltic league really late as as first they didn’t have enough players.

San Mateo qualified as an 8th person joined their team, giving them enough players to start one goalie, six startera, and one bench player.

Having a lot of bench players is vital for a water polo game as players will often  get too tired and will need a replacement or sub. Their team consisted mostly of freshmen and sophomore, with not a single senior participating.

Carlmont head coach Cole Bielski decided not to start the Carlmont starter’s knowing that they would have an easy victory.

By halftime the score was 13-0. Carlmont allowed San Mateo to get on the scoreboard in the 4th quarter, with their only goal of the whole game.

Eventually Carlmont took mercy and stopped shooting and were told by their coach to practice more game time plays.

The girls team tried out something new as they started a new sophmore goalie, Hannah Carnie, who for her first game starting on varsity managed to only let in one goal.

Next week the Lady Scots will look to continue their dominant play against Half Moon Bay.
