Despite battling to a scoreless tie in the opening half, the Palo Alto girls dropped a 2-0 nonleague decision at Carlmont to open the soccer season on Monday in Belmont. The Vikings' Aoi Sugihara got the first corner kick of the season, but Carlmont’s goalie turned the shot away. Paly's Jess Branson came off the bench early and immediately contributed by heading out a Carlmont free kick. Sunny Lyu made a nice cross to Sugihara but, again, the Vikings were denied. Paly junior keeper Sarah Lim made several stops and, just before the half, Olivia Musil cleared the ball to avert a possible Carlmont goal.

The second half started with a burst by Paly’s Lena Chang, who missed right, and a corner kick by Sugihara that Carlmont just cleared away. The Scots answered with a goal, which woke up Paly and resulted in a flurry of shots from Lyu, Nika Woodfall, and Sugihara. But, nothing got through. Carlmont answered with a score on a free kick just outside Paly’s 18-yard box. Paly battled back with more offense -- two crosses from Megan Tall to Branson, but neither could find the cage.
