Game Recap

Carlmont 21 – San Mateo 14

The Carlmont Scots (6-0, 2-0) defeated Lake Division rival San Mateo (4-2, 0-2) in a 21-14 action packed contest that see-sawed with dramatic momentum shifts in the closing minutes. In a game that saw Carlmont’s senior running back Demarii Blanks rush 27 times for 188 yards and San Mateo’s senior quarterback Jose Ontiveros pass for 178 yards, it may have been the ball hawking play of Scot defensive back Shawn Azzopardi that ultimately turned the game in favor of Carlmont. San Mateo took the lead in the 1st quarter when Ontiveros connected with senior tight end Jake Jeffries for a 30 yard touchdown strike. San Mateo was driving for a second score in the 1st quarter when Azzopardi intercepted a pass to stop the Bearcat drive. Two minutes later, Blanks scored his first touchdown. Blanks added a second touchdown to the Scots’ tally in the third quarter, and it looked like Carlmont would take firm control of the game. However, Ontiveros connected again with Jeffries to tie the game at 8:40 in the 4th quarter. The Scots stormed back. Then, inside the Bearcat 20 yard line and facing a critical 4th down play with 4 yards needed to maintain control of the ball, Blanks blasted over left tackle and shed two tacklers to pick up 5 yards. Three carries later, Blanks scored his third touchdown to take the lead 21-14. With a little over a minute to play, Ontiveros moved the Bearcats down the field with two crisp passes to Jeffries and a third to senior wide receiver Leonardo Vieira. From the Scot 41 yard line with 38 seconds remaining, the Bearcats tried to tie the game with a halfback pass to Jeffries but Azzopardi stripped the ball before Jeffries could cross the goal line then pounced on the loose ball to preserve Carlmont’s win.
