The Palo Alto girls’ soccer team gained some ground in the tough SCVAL De Anza Division race with a 3-1 victory over visiting Homestead on a dreary Tuesday afternoon. The Vikings improved to 3-3 in league (6-5-1 overall) while the Mustangs fell to 2-3 (5-8), allowing Paly to move into fourth place.

The winning goal came in the first half as senior captain Kelly Jenks played a five-yard pass down the left sideline to senior Sophie Cain, who got to it before it passed the corner flag. Cain sent a cross in the air to senior Kaitlyn Patterson, who was running on to it and volleyed it into the goal in the sixth minute.

In the 30th minute, sophomore Marina Foley received a ball a the top of the box, turned with it and chipped it in the air just in front of Jenks, who raced to beat the goalie and slotted it to the right outside the keeper's reach into the cage for a 2-0 lead.

Homestead made it a 2-1 match just two minutes later, but Paly put up an insurance goal in the 69th minutes when the Vikings were a free kick. Outside sophomore defender Gracie Cain took the kick and lofted it up, with Jenks getting a head on it in traffic and Foley finishing it in.
