The No. 12-seeded Castilleja soccer team knocked off No. 5 seed Soquel, 3-1, in a Central Coast Section Division III girls' opener on Wednesday night in Soquel. The Gators (7-10-2) advanced to Saturday's quarterfinals against No. 4 Menlo School (13-4-2), a team that beat Castilleja twice during the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) season.

Castilleja, making its first CCS appearance since 2007, took the lead in the 18th minute when Kaley Nelson's free kick was headed into the net by Victoria Pu. Early in the second half, the Knights (11-5-5) evened the score on a 1v1 that was deftly placed out of goalie Nina Jansen's reach, but the Gators answered when Emily Mosbacher collected a Katherine Hobbs' deflected pass and sent it low left for a 2-1 lead. The final Gators' goal was a free kick by Nelson from 38 yards in the 77th minute.
