The Carlmont Scots Junior Varsity (JV) basketball’s first quad game of the year ended in a devastating score of 58-5 against the Menlo-Atherton (MA) Bears.

In the beginning of the first quarter, Menlo-Atherton pulled ahead of the Scots with their advance offensive and defensive tactics. But despite the Bears skillful advantage, the Scots continued to stay focused and worked hard throughout the game.

Sophomores Kyle Ramos (number five), Andrew Carlsen (number four), and Koby Mamiya (number 14) all demonstrated great foot work as they worked together to try and trick the defensive MA with their quick moves.

The Scots players’ efforts to rebound from their recent misfortune at the start of the quarter proved to be semi-effective as the quarter ended with 28-3, with MA still in the lead.

“It was really embarrassing to be that behind especially on our home court, but we tried out best and sometimes that’s all you can really do,” said sophomore Tyler Bradenburg.

Throughout the second quarter, MA continuously scored and made an intense one-second left on the clock shot, bringing the score to 37-3.

As the game progressed, the Bears continued to sweep the Scots. The Scots made no advancements until the end of the fourth quarter. The Scots scored two points from a shooting foul by Bradenburg. The game concluded with the score 5-58, Scots lose.

“It felt pretty devastating to lose. There were times when we kind of gave up and lost spirit. But during the second half of the game we really pulled together and that created a lot more effort from everyone,” said Carlsen.

Watching your team lose is ever enjoyable or desired. However despite the score, Carlmont fans remained loyal and positively supported their home team.

Carlmont student and fan Kevin Ernesto said, “It was hard to watch our team lose so badly but I didn’t stop cheering for them. We [Carlmont fans] continued to support our team until the last second of the game. I felt proud to be a part of such a positive environment because you know that they were trying their best.”

“It was a tough loss. But we have to get past it and look forward to the upcoming games. What’s done is what’s done, it’s time to focus our attention on getting better for our next game against Hillsdale and the other quad games coming up. If we keep our heads up and keep working hard during practice, we’ll get them [Menlo-Atherton] the next time we play them,” said Ramos.

The remaining two quad games are scheduled for Jan. 24 against Sequoia at Sequoia and Jan. 31 against Woodside at home.
