Despite playing in awful weather conditions and nearly having the match cancelled, the Palo Alto girls' soccer team overcame that and a visiting Los Altos team to post a 3-0 victory in SCVAL De Anza Division action on Tuesday. Palo Alto (2-2, 5-4-1) remained within reach of the division leaders while the Eagles fell to 0-4 (3-6-1).

Following a scoreless first half, Paly seniors Erika Hoglund and Kelly Jenks teamed up for what proved to be the winning goal. Hoglund broke free in the penalty box and, after passing up a shot, slid a pass to Jenks, who put the ball low and into the net in the 47th minute.

Just seven minutes later, Jenks juked a defender and fed the ball to sophomore Marina Foley, who worked herself past the goalie and a defender and finished for a 2-0 advantage. In the 75th minute, junior Gracie Marshall passed the ball to a wide-open Sophie Cain, and the senior midfielder lofted a 34-yard left-footed shot into the far back corner of the cage -- just over the reach of the keeper.

The match nearly was called off before it started due to the lightning that delayed the Sacred Heart Prep-Menlo game, which started 30 minutes earlier. The bad weather conditions nonetheless hindered both offenses as Paly outshot Los Altos by just 9-5. Paly defender Hannah Ohlson was a standout for the Vikings.
