The Palo Alto girls' soccer team opened its SCVAL De Anza Division season by rallying for a 1-1 deadlock with longtime nemesis Monta Vista in a match played at Homestead High on Wednesday. The Matadors (0-0-1, 4-2-2) grabbed a 1-0 lead on a corner kick in the 10th minute and could have extended it 10 minutes later, but Paly keeper Erin Chang made a great save to keep the deficit at one goal.

After getting only four shots on goal in the first half, the Vikings (0-0-1, 2-2-3) came out in the second more aggressively. While a shot by Marina Foley was saved, the Vikings kept up the pressure and finally broke through a minute later when Katie Foug made a nice pass to Lily Seedman, who finished for the tying goal.

Both teams had their chances after that with Foley missing from the top of the 18-yard box. Paly's Emy Kelty foiled Monta Vista's final scoring opportunity by stealing the ball before time ran out. Chang finished with six saves.
