Palo Alto 7, Los Altos 5
Date of competition: Tuesday, October 23, 2012
The Palo Alto Girl’s Water Polo team played another exciting league game against Los Altos on Tuesday. In typical fashion, the Lady Vikes started slowly and trailed at the end of the first period by a score of 2-3. However, the way they have played all season, with a tough defense, kept them in the game. With goals from Tara Lawrence, Katie Francis (2), Emma Wolfe, and Martine LeClerc the Lady Vikes took the lead right before halftime. It was a seesaw battle until late in the third quarter when Los Altos tied the score at 5-5 with 1:43 left. However, the Lady Vikes fired right back with a goal from Tess van Hulsen with 0:38 on the clock. Goalie Abby Bromberg and the tough Palo Alto defense shut down the Eagles for the rest of the game and Emma Wolfe added her second goal of the game in the 4th period. So, Senior Night in the Palo Alto Pool ended with a victory celebration after a final score of 7-5.
