Varsity Girls Soccer
Palo Alto 1, Monta Vista 1
Date of competition: Tuesday, February 2, 2010
In a rematch of last season's CCS Division I championship match, host Palo Alto and defending section champ Monta Vista battled to a 1-1 draw in SCVAL De Anza Division action on Tuesday. The Matadors(5-1-2, 11-2-2) remained atop the division while the Vikings (3-3-1, 6-5-2) stayed in fourth place.
Monta Vista grabbed a 1-0 first-half lead on a nice feed from Cheryl Kute to Mimi Akaogi, who brought it back across the penalty spot and drilled a waist-high shot into the left side of the goal. Palo Alto got the equalizer in the second half (72nd minute) when senior Kelly Jenks controlled the ball in traffic and found senior Maeve Stewart, who took enough touches to force a commitment from the keeper and then chose the near side for her tying goal.
