The boys’ junior varsity soccer team starts off their season well with a win against the Mustangs the day before Thanksgiving.

Only six members of Capuchino’s team was present, so one of their varsity players had to sub in. The Scots had nine players on while the Mustangs had seven, contributing to Capuchino’s loss.

In the beginning of the game, the Scots missed a few shots. But 10 minutes into the first half Carlmont scored a goal, getting the team rallied up.

“My favorite part about soccer is that it makes you work. It’s a game of strategy which is what I like about it,” said Kelyan Taylor, a sophomore.

After confusion over substitutions, the Scots were able to score another goal, making it 2-0.

With high-energy and fast-paced movements, the two teams went back and forth trying to keep their defense up while attacking the ball aggressively. Not before long, Nick Meier, a sophomore, maneuvered around the goalie and scored a goal for the Scots.

That concluded the first half of the game, with Carlmont leading 3-0.

John Cinque, a freshman, tries to keep the ball away from the opposing team.

During the break, Will Stambaugh, the varsity coach who was subbing in for the JV coach,  said, “We need to keep sharp, move the ball around.”

After a few minutes, the referee blew the whistle and both teams made their way back to the field.

In the beginning of the second half, Capuchino’s offense was doing well, but it wasn’t enough to faze the Scots’ defense. The Mustangs almost scored twice, but Tomas Ronderos, a sophomore, kicked the ball out-of-bounds to defend the goal.

Carlmont’s offense responded with a goal by Danny Wilson, a sophomore. Overall, the Scots offense and defense played strong, as the Mustangs weren’t able to score, while the Scots had many scoring opportunities.

After many missed goals, Taylor finally scored, getting the crowd excited with parents cheering and siblings clapping.

Capuchino refused to give up and fought their hardest, but it wasn’t enough, as Carlmont scored again. The game ended at 5-0, and the Scots won their first scrimmage of the season.

Their next scrimmage is an away game against Oak Grove High School on Nov. 29.

“This year, I want to win it all in our league,” said sophomore Luke Hendriksen. But for now, they can “kick” back and relax on their Thanksgiving break.
