Date of competition: Saturday, September 15, 2012
The PALY Lady Vikes bounced back on their second day of the St. Francis Invitational with a double sudden death overtime thrilling win against Los Altos. Team Captain Abby Kinnamen set the tone with the first power goal to make it 1-0. Los Altos answered back with 3 goals in the second period despite a great goal by Team Co-Captain Martine Le Clerc making the score 2-3 at the end of the 2nd period. A very defensive 3rd period by both Paly and Los Altos with unstoppable goals by Tara Lawrence and Martine Le Clerc put the Lady Vikes within 1 goal. In the 4th quarter Los Altos scored another goal to make the score 6-4 to Los Altos. It was now PALY’s turn when Sophomore Tess van Hulsen scored two spectacular goals to tie the game and take her team into Sudden Death Overtime. In the first overtime due to a highly defensive period both Paly and Los Altos were unable to score. With the second sudden death overtime under way Tess van Hulsen scored on a breakaway for her third goal to give Paly the 7-6 victory.
