Scots came up short in final game

Jake Kumamoto, number 37, was the Scots leading rusher.

Carlmont Frosh-Soph football lost to Sequoia by one point in their last game of the season.

Sequoia is Carlmont’s rival school and many fans were there to support the team. It was an intense game and the Scots played hard, but walked away with a 28-27 loss. Despite the Scots’ loss tonight, the season was impressive, and they ended up in first place in their league.

The Scots started off their last game in the lead. Jake Kumamoto scored a 95 yard run touchdown from a goal line stand. Also in the first quarter Jack Stewart scored a touchdown, putting the Scots in the lead 13-0 by the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Kumamoto scored another touchdown followed by a touchdown by Sequoia, putting the score at halftime 20-6 Scots.

Lucas Coley was playing defensive tackle during the second quarter when his chin strap broke and he had to come out of the game. “I went up to block the linebacker and his helmet hit the bottom of my facemask, my chinstrap broke, and my helmet came off.” said Coley. The problem was fixed and he went back in the game.

In the third quarter Sequoia scored again, but Carlmont was still in the lead 20-14.

Within four seconds of the fourth quarter Sequoia scored a touchdown tying the game at  20-20. Blake O’ Connor intercepted a ball and scored a touchdown putting Carlmont in the lead 27-20. Carlmont’s lead didn’t last long because Sequoia then scored a touchdown and completed the two point conversion. The game ended with Carlmont losing by one.

After the game the athletic director, Pat Smith, was asked how he thought the season went and he said, “Despite their loss tonight, the season was very good. The team had a tremendous amount of fun together. I heard them in the locker rooms doing football cheers. They all enjoyed being around each other,” said Smith. The team was really connected and had good chemistry. “I never heard any negative comments toward each other,” said Smith

When Coley was asked how the chemistry will be on the varsity team next year with the sophomores moving up he said, “It’s not going to be hard because we will be reunited with the team we played with when we were freshman so we already know the guys and we have played with them so we will have good chemistry.”

The Frosh-Soph team had a new coach this season and when Cutler Pons, who plays defensive end, was asked what he thought about getting a new coach for this past season he said, “I liked it because I was able to make a new impression and build a new relationship.”

Even though Frosh-Soph lost their last game they took first place in their league.
