In an important West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) match played in often torrential rainy conditions, Priory bounced back from its big loss to Sacred Heart Prep last Thursday to knock Castilleja out of a share for first place with a 5-0 girls' soccer triumph at the Mayfield Soccer Complex.

The Panthers (2-1-1, 4-5-5) perhaps drew a defining line between the league contenders and pretenders with the dominating victory over Castilleja (2-1, 5-2), leaving SHP, Menlo and Priory as the clear favorites for league honors this season.

Junior Massiel Castellanos scored two first-half goals and would have had a third, in the second half, but was called for offsides. The first goal came in the fifth minute and the second, with help from a defender who slipped on the slick artificial grass, came 30 minutes later.

With about four minutes gone in the second half, senior Lauren Allen passed to sophomore Darrah Shields, who finished for a 3-0 lead. Junior Alex Schnabel, who had been sidelined with a leg injury for a number of weeks, provided an offensive boost when she scored in the 55th minute and again in the 69th minute following a nice run through the defense by Castellanos.
