Scots JV football holds the line


The Scots huddle together after the game.

Carlmont’s junior varsity football team defeated the Hillsdale High School Knights 16-14 in the Scots’ last home game of the season.

The Scots were behind 13-14 in the third quarter, but a very lucky field goal that hit the bottom of the uprights, made by kicker Aaron Albaum, clinched the victory. “I thought it wasn’t good… it bounced back and I thought it missed,” said Albaum.

“It was a great game… if I had a game ball, I would give it to Aaron Albaum,” said JV head coach Rene George.

Albaum kicked three field goals, which allowed the Scots to defend during the fourth quarter to maintain their lead. “I felt pretty good. I’ve been injured and didn’t kick any (the day before),” said Albaum.

Carlmont’s most recent win gives them a record of 6-2 overall and 4-0 in the Peninsula Athletic League (PAL). Their next game will be against Capuchino High School on Nov. 1.

There were a decent number of spectators present to see the Scots’ last home game. “They’ve been having a really great season,” said sophomore Mariya Chichmarenko.

The players on the team also seemed excited by the season they have been having. “(I am) feeling pretty good to be on a winning team,” said Albaum.

Coach George had this to say: “I have a great coaching staff and a great team… I wouldn’t trade this for anything in the world.”
