San Mateo VS. Serra Varsity Soccer Game

On Wednesday December 5, San Mateo Boys Varsity team battled Serra, an all-boys Catholic school. The game was evenly matched and both teams fought for the win, but Serra came out on top. Unfortunately, it was our first loss this season.

It was a very close game with a score of 0-1. Serra scored at the end of the first half. Larry Campbell, senior, said, “Defense played really well. We shut down their offense but they ended up scoring at their only opportunity”.

Kent Turtletaub said, “The best part was decking one of the forwards, but I knew him so it was okay.” Aggression is part of the game and it’s what separates the good from the best.

In any team, there’s always room for improvement. Even though our offense needs some work, we still are able to get lots of shots on goal.  Kent Turtletaub said, “We hit the post and had a lot of opportunities buy just couldn’t score.” It’s all about the finish and with practice, they will surely succeed.

The team is off to a great start this year and expects to make it far this season. We want to begin another winning streak and make it last. Kent Turtletaub said, “As a team, we play really well together and that’s what good because if you have a bunch of good players that don’t play together you’d never win.”

Their teamwork will hopefully lead them back to CCS this year because Kent said, “We tryna repeat our CCS win.” Larry added, “If Serra makes it to CCS, come see us.” Come out to support the Boys Varsity Soccer Team.
