With Stanford-bound senior Skylar Dorosin scoring nine goals, two coming in overtime, the Palo Alto girls' water polo team pulled out a 13-11 victory over No. 10 San Benito in extra time in the opening round of the Central Coast Section Division I playoffs on Wednesday night in the Vikings' pool.

The No. 7-seeded Vikings (15-11) next will play No. 2 Leland (21-5) in the quarterfinals on Saturday at Sacred Heart Prep at 3 p.m. Palo Alto dropped a 10-4 decision to the Chargers earlier in the season while starting its season 1-4. Paly, however, has turned it around and gone 4-1 in its past five outings.

Dorosin scored goals in each of the mandatory three-minute overtimes and held off a power-play situation by San Benito while holding a 12-11 lead in the second OT. Paly's Martine LeClerc provided an insurance goal in the final seconds, her second goal of the match. Hannah Park and Tara Lawrence also provided goals.
