Gunn saw its possible championship hopes disappear in a 3-2 loss to Mountain View in the semifinals of the Palo Alto Winter Classic on Friday.

The Titans (2-1-1) grabbed a 1-0 halftime lead on a goal by Anna von Clemm (assisted by Lisa Jackson), but the Spartans roared back with three second-half goals. Sarah Robinson added a second goal for Gunn, which will play Priory for third place at noon on the Paly football field on Saturday.

Tavi Crum, Emily Andrew and Kirsten Belinsky scored for Mountain View.

The Panthers (2-1-1) got a goal from Mariana Galvan (assist by Eugenia Jernick) in the second half, but the Scots also scored as the match ended in a deadlock at regulation
