Varsity Girls Soccer
Priory 3, Harbor 2
Date of competition: Wednesday, February 26, 2014
In Central Coast Section Division III girls' soccer action Wednesday, No. 12 Priory (8-9-1) advanced to the quarterfinals following a 3-2 victory over No. 5 Harbor (10-5-4) in Portola Valley. The Panthers found themselves down, 2-0, at the end of the first 40 minutes with what was a questionable first-half effort against Harbor. The final forty minutes of the match were truly epic as the Panthers rallied back to win. Freshman standout Alicia Talancon scored in the 47th minute (assisted by Margaret Shields), receiving the ball just outside the box and placing her shot to the near post and to the keeper's right. In the 52nd minute, senior captain Erin Simpson converted a free kick just outside the box, roofing her shot to beat the keeper. The game-winner came in the 69th minute when Lexi Garrity was fouled 30 yards out, setting up another Simpson free kick. It took the best goal of the match to beat Harbor, with Simpson hitting the upper V for the game winner.
