Girls soccer confident about season

Despite their 0-1 loss to the Saint Francis High School Lancers, the Carlmont Scots junior varsity girls soccer team is confident that they will not disappoint this year.

Even though this was a preseason game, the Scots gave it all they got and only allowed one goal.

“We had really good defense the whole game. They just had one breakaway,” said sophomore Johanna Hendriksen.

Monday’s game was also the first game of the Scots’s 2012-2013 season. Hendriksen commented, “We could have won, but Saint Francis is a very good team. It was a good first game.”

Last year, Carlmont finished third in the Peninsula Athletic League and hope to do even better this year with a mix of new contributions and old veterans.

“The freshmen are really good this year. I expect to get at least third this year, if not better,” added Hendriksen.

Getting into the top three of the PAL is no easy task. The Scots must give it their all if they want to achieve their goal.

“If we communicate and play like a team, we will be very successful.”

JV soccer’s next game will be against Menlo School on Thursday at 3:30.
