The Palo Alto girls' soccer team will play for the championship of its own Winter Classic tournament on Friday, but won't be taking a lot of momentum into the 4 p.m. showdown with St. Francis on the Palo Alto football field.
Both the Vikings and Lancers, in fact, will be coming off non-victories during Wednesday's third round. Palo Alto (2-1-2) suffered a 1-1 deadlock with Priory while St. Francis (3-1-1) was shocked by Mountain View, 3-1. Earlier, St.Francis had beaten Sacred Heart Prep, but SHP then defeated Mountain View.
In the Paly-Priory match, Elizabeth Petit gave the Vikings a first-half lead by scoring from at least 30 yards out on a free kick. In the second half, Priory's Zoe Ciupitu crossed the ball from the right and teammate Darrah Shields got a foot on it and directed toward the goal, where Paly sophomore keeper Alex Kershner blocked it away, but not far enough. Priory senior Leslie Barkmann got a foot on the ball and sliced it past Kershner for the tying goal.
Barkmann, who has made a verbal commitment to play soccer at Cal Poly-SLO, is a club teammate of Paly's Jessie Duller and Sammi Bengston. The Panthers improved to 1-1-1 on the season.
