JV girls soccer had a major victory against the Hillsdale Knights on Feb. 4 on home turf.

Their solid defensive efforts and continuous speed ended with a score of 6-0, including a hat trick from freshman Samantha Tolu.

“We did rather well tonight,” said coach Scott Pendleton, “We had nice attacks and passes, and we worked our crosses and finishes. At times we’ve lacked this, but we didn’t tonight.”

At kickoff, the Scots immediately raced down the field in hopes of their first goal. Although Hillsdale’s defense put out a lot of effort, it wasn’t enough to stop Carlmont.

The first goal was scored four minutes into the game by Tolu. Hillsdale’s keeper had kicked the ball out of the box when Tolu immediately took possession of it and scored.

“I think we did really well. We dominated possession and had amazing passing in the midfield,” said Tolu.

The Scots did not end there. About five minutes later, junior Paris Bartolo took a corner kick, placing the ball in the perfect location for sophomore Isabel Mayoss to head it into the goal and make the score 2-0.

“It was a great kick from Paris, and the goal felt great,” said Mayoss.

As the first half went on, Carlmont’s defense made endless successful  efforts to keep in the ball in the other half. The Scots’ offense was setting up play after play.

At nine minutes in, Mayoss brought the ball down the field, and Tolu scored the third goal.

“Our communication was good, our passing as good, and everyone put in a ton of effort,” said Mayoss.

Sophomore Sophia Eaker made a huge impact on the offensive effort, having just come back from an injury.

By halftime, the score was 3-0. However, the Scots were not finished dominating play. Six minutes into the second half, sophomore Sofia Tamm scored the fourth goal after effective passing by the team up the field.

Carlmont’s defense continued to shut down all of Hillsdale’s opportunities for a goal. Seven minutes after the fourth goal, Eaker scored off of a corner kick.

The second half was halfway over when Hillsdale’s offense became more aggressive, and the ball started to move into Carlmont’s defense more often. Although they were hungry for a goal, Hillsdale’s offense was not playing effectively enough to break the barrier.

Tolu had another breakaway. Hillsdale’s goalie trapped the ball with her feet, and Tolu stole it from her, racing down the field to score her third goal of the game. The final score was 6-0.

“I was happy and excited because it was my first hat trick of the season,” said Tolu.

The game ended with Hillsdale shut out. Although the Scots were triumphant, they still plan to improve.

“We can still pick up the intensity. One of our biggest struggles is keeping up the energy,” said sophomore Katie Snider.
