Palo Alto 2, Saratoga 0
Date of competition: Wednesday, February 5, 2014
Palo Alto remained among the SCVAL De Anza Division leaders in girls soccer with a 2-0 victory over host Saratoga. The Vikings improved to 5-1-3 in league (8-3-4 overall) while winning their second straight. Paly has lost only once in its past 13 matches. The Vikings got their second shutout win over the Falcons with both goals coming in the first half. At 10 minutes in, Heidi Moeser centered a ball that Saratoga couldn't clear and Katie Foug one-touched it for a 1-0 lead. With 11 minutes remaining in the half, Jacey Pederson stole the ball at midfield and drove down to within 18 yards before getting her shot blocked. Saratoga, however, couldn't clear the ball fast enough and Paly's Julia Kwasnick came all the way up from the back line to take control and fire in the second goal.
