CORRECTION: The Paly girls have NOT had three straight 4-0 season-ending losses in CCS. 2006: St. Ignatius beat Paly 1-0 in the 1st round, in what was a hard-fought, very physical and close game. 2007: Paly had a BYE for the 1st round, and then Mitty beat Paly 4-0 -- "with" soccer star Teresa Noyola and "with" a strong line of experienced senior defenders. 2008: Paly beats Cupertino 4-0 in the first round. Then Mitty, for the 2nd year in a row (not the 3rd!), beats Paly 4-0 -- this time "without" Noyola, "without" a strong senior class of experienced defenders and "without" other key players who were either hurt or unavailable over the President's Weekend holiday. One could look at the progression from 2007 to 2008 and see the positive twist to this story: that the Paly girls actually improved from 2007 to 2008 by holding Mitty to just 4 goals while playing without key players. Perhaps this bodes well for a young and up-and-coming group of sophomores and juniors for next year? Here's the link to the CCS soccer page to confirm the info listed above: Web Link.
