Game Recap

The Carlmont girls volleyball team beat Cupertino 25-19, 25-17, 25-19 in a CCS Division-I quarterfinal match in Belmont Saturday. The Scots improve to 28-4, while the Pioneers end their season at 20-8.

Carlmont sophomore Alisha Mitha hit .842 with a career-high 16 kills to lead the way for the Scots. Mitha added four blocks and two digs in a dominant performance. Senior Maya McClellan had 15kills, six digs, a block and an ace; and classmate Sophie Srivastava had two kills on two tries to go along with 32 assists, 11 digs, two aces and two blocks. Sophomore Morgan McClellan hit .529 with 11 kills, four digs, two aces and a block, and senior Tai Mei Chang added 14 digs. Junior Elizabeth Prozell hit .500 with four kills and two blocks, and senior Emma Vanoncini hit .400 with three kills and five blocks. Freshman Jules Tan had five digs and junior Annika Nambiar added three.

Carlmont is competing in the CCS playoffs for the ninth consecutive season, and for the 16th time in 17 years. In defeating Cupertino for the second time this year (also: 25-10, 25-18 in pool play at the MVLA Tournament on 9/30), the Scots advance to the CCS semifinals for the fourth straight year. Carlmont improves to 84-22 (.792) over the past three seasons. The Scots are seeking a second CCS-finals appearance in the last three years, and trying to secure the third trip to NorCals in school history (CCS champions in 2005; CCS runners-up in 2015 – Carlmont also won CCS in 1975, before there was a NorCal tournament).

While Carlmont will graduate five stellar seniors after this season, the team returns nine season-long varsity players, plus five other players who have made varsity appearances this year. The Scots JV (20-11, 10-4) and Freshman teams (17-7, 8-4) also had very good seasons, so the Scots are set up to continue their success in future years.

Carlmont returns to action Wednesday in the CCS semifinals at Los Gatos HS, facing Salinas in a rematch of a three-set Carlmont victory on Sept. 7. Match time is either 5:30.

The Terremere Trophy will remain at Sequoia High School following a closely fought contest which saw Sequoia (4-5) defeat Carlmont (7-2) in overtime, 13-7. Friday’s game marked the 64th time Carlmont and Sequoia have met on the gridiron. The game featured slashing power running by Carlmont Scot senior Demarii Blanks who carried the ball 18 times for 138 yards and a 1st quarter touchdown. However, the Sequoia Cherokee matched Carlmont’s offense with a balanced attack that combined 15 rushes for 76 yards by Sequoia junior running back David Tuakalau Jr. and timely pass completions by senior quarterback Patrick Lopiparo. Lopiparo connected on 10 of 26 passes for 126 yards and one touchdown to Tuakalau in the 3rd quarter for Sequoia’s only score in regulation. Carlmont had two opportunities to seize the advantage with its specialty teams. Scot senior QB and kicker Henry Reich had a 27 yard field goal attempt blocked with 5:41 remaining in the 2nd quarter, and with final ticks on the clock counting down, Reich’s 40 yard field attempt struck the crossbar and fell short by inches. Regulation play ended in a 7-7 tie. In overtime, the Scots were unable to move the ball into the end zone on four tries, but Tuakalau burst up the middle on Sequoia’s first overtime play to cross the goal line and win the game. Although Carlmont edged Sequoia 270 total yards to 257 yards, the Terremere Trophy, named after legendary Sequoia coach Al Terremere, will remain on the Cherokee campus for another year.

● 10/27 Jefferson HS @ Carlmont

Jefferson 40 – Carlmont 28

The Carlmont Scots (3-1 PAL, 7-1) led the Jefferson Grizzlies (4-0 PAL, 7-1) at halftime 28-19, but 21 unanswered Grizzly points in the 2nd half allowed Jefferson to defeat Carlmont 40-28 and move into first place in the PAL Lake Division. Carlmont Scot senior running back Demarii Blanks scored two 1st half rushing touchdowns and he returned a kickoff 96 yards for a third touchdown before the intermission. However, Blanks’ 17 carries for 205 yards were not enough to overcome Grizzly senior running back Angelo Velez’s 30 carries for 161 yards and three touchdowns plus a stellar passing performance by Grizzly junior quarterback Joaquin Alvarez who completed 20 of 31 passes for 252 yards and two touchdowns to Jefferson senior wide receiver Daniel Benjamin.

Blanks’ scored on runs of 17 and 48 yards in the 1st quarter. The Grizzlies came storming back, but the Scot defense stepped up to halt a Jefferson drive when Carlmont junior defensive back Ralphie Holmes intercepted a Grizzly pass near midfield. However, in Jefferson’s next possession, Grizzly QB Alvarez connected with Benjamin on a 42 yard touchdown strike before the quarter ended to get Jefferson’s first points on the board. In the second frame, Scot senior running back Devon Sagon extended the Scot lead to 21-7 with a slashing 35 yard touchdown run. Carlmont’s lead narrowed to 21-13 when the ensuing Grizzly drive culminated with a 4 yard touchdown run by Alvarez. Then, the Scots’ special teams made a statement when senior linebacker Jason Lloyd blocked the Grizzlies’ PAT kick attempt. The Scots added an exclamation point to their statement when Blanks and the kickoff return team scored on a 96 yard sprint to the Grizzly end zone. Alvarez answered Blanks’ third touchdown by successfully combining running plays featuring Velez and passes to Benjamin that set up a Velez 44 yard touchdown run with 1:34 remaining in the 1st half. Carlmont led 28-19 at the intermission. Jefferson’s 21 unanswered points came on two Velez touchdown plunges in the 3rd quarter, and Benjamin’s second touchdown catch from Alvarez on the first play of the 4th quarter. Benjamin snagged 10 receptions for 123 yards during the game. The Scots’ ground game started clicking again, but a fumble late in the final frame erased any Scot hopes of a comeback. The game ended Jefferson 40 – Carlmont 28. The Grizzlies’ victory over Carlmont makes Jefferson the likely team to represent the PAL’s Lake Division in the 2017 post season.
