Surging Scots deny Hillsdale

Carlmont knocked off Hillsdale on Friday (35-21), to go 3-0 in league play.

This was a huge win for the Scots as it was their first real test in league play, they certainly passed the test behind another fast start on offense and defense.

Carlmont knew going in that Hillsdale had a powerful offense, capable of putting up lots of points in a short period of time.

The defense showed up to the challenge, limiting the Knights to 234 yards of total offense in the game and only a single touchdown for the majority of the game.

For most the game Carlmont enjoyed a four touchdown lead over Hillsdale.

Carlmont opened up the scoring with a 1-yard Joe Lasala run up the middle, Hillsdale then responded with a big scoring play of its own.

The Scots responded right away, countering Hillsdale with a kickoff return that put them right back in the drivers seat. Hillsdale needing a counter of its own was denied by senior Sky Regan, who picked off Hillsdale’s quarterback at around midfield.

This huge stop for the Carlmont defense proved to be crucial, the Scots went on to score off that turnover which opened up the scoring.

Senior Andrew Morrow had this to say about the teams overall performance,” The defense stood their ground as a unit and limited the big plays, we limited the big plays and never allowed Hillsdale to ever get into any kind of offensive rhythm, the offense got the job done and kept our momentum going throughout.”

Carlmont is now undefeated in league play and can turn its attention to the Homecoming game next week against Capuchino under the lights.
