Palo Alto kept its hopes alive of winning its own Palo Alto Winter Classic as the Vikings advanced with a 4-2 decision on penalty kicks over Carlmont in girls’ soccer action Thursday. Paly will play Aragon in the semifinals on Friday (6 p.m.) on the Paly football field. The winner will advance to the championship match on Saturday at the El Camino field at 2:30 p.m.

Palo Alto and Carlmont battled to a scoreless deadlock in regulation as the Vikings had only three shots – one on frame – while the Scots had five of their nine shots on frame. Paly junior goalie Erin Chang made those five saves while Nina Kelty cleared a loose ball from in front of the cage to prevent a possible game-winning goal by Carlmont.

Once in penalty kicks, Carlmont missed its first attempt and Chang stopped the Scots’ fourth attempt as the Vikings earned a berth into the semifinals. Paly got successful PK’s from Terra Jones, Jordan Smith, Mayssen Labidi and Emy Kelty. Chang followed with her block as Paly’s bench erupted in celebration.
