Varsity Girls Soccer
Palo Alto 1, Santa Clara 1
Date of competition: Friday, January 3, 2014
The Palo Alto girls started their 2014 soccer season with a 1-1 deadlock with visiting Santa Clara (2-2-1) on Friday evening. The first half was a well-played defensive battle as Palo Alto had more shots on goal, led by Katie Foug with three while Santa Clara’s best chance came 14 minutes in when Shaelan Murison shot one that went just over the bar. But neither team gave up a goal. The Vikings came out a little more aggressive in the second half, getting more shots than Santa Clara. but it wasn’t until Katherine Shan earned a corner kick that resulted in Paly's Jacey Pederson finding the near post for the first score of the match with 15 minutes remaining. That woke the Bruins up as they scored three minutes later on a throw in that Paly couldn’t get cleared from the box. Kelsee Katsanes fielded a rebound and kicked it in to tie the match at 1-1. Palo Alto had several more good runs, but couldn’t get anything in. Paly goalie Sara Lim had five saves on the night.
