Blackout

Our varsity football team continues its winning streak with a victory against Carlmont giving them a record of 2-0.

Larry Campbell, sophomore, says, “A win is a win, but let’s hope for better next time.” The 14-7 win was too close of a game for him, especially since San Mateo made a few silly mistakes.

Although the turn out of people was less than last year, Liza Leykina says there was still a great flow of energy. “I love when we’re all cheering,” she says, “I feel so proud that San Mateo is such a united, spirited school.” Indeed, the San Mateo stands are a sight to see, singing loudly to the band’s playing.

San Mateo began with a quick lead, when George Nafahu made a touchdown, lifting the spirits in our stands and our pep band breaking out proudly into our Fight Song.

At half time, the score was 8-7 San Mateo, and it looked for a brief moment that Carlmont had a chance to win.  The Dance Team graced our field as the players rested for the second half. As always, they were a hit – Jisoo Choi, junior, performed a sassy solo dance as the audience laughed and cheered wildly.

The second half had some fumbles and pass-misses from our team, but fortunately we were able to pull through at the end, with Christopher Zografos making the final touchdown, bringing us ahead to our score of 14-7.

It was an exciting game, and it was especially good to see our football winning glory, fighting on the field not for themselves, but representing our school.
