Comments: 19

Palo Alto bounced back after last week's first loss of the season to beat Los Gatos at home, 4-1. Sophomore Sophie Cain led the scoring for the Vikings as her shot on goal ricocheted off a Los Gatos player and into the net. Captain Teresa Noyola tallied the second goal of the afternoon, receiving a cross from midfielder Cain and then sending a hard-struck ground ball rolling to the right of the Los Gatos' keeper, who leapt to the ground -- seemingly stopping the ball -- but in reality the ball slipped under and through her outstretched arms. The second half starts with a bullet of a goal by Noyola after receiving a solid cross from junior midfielder Jessie Duller. At this point, a Los Gatos player takes down and fouls frosh GK sensation Alex Kershner, who goes out for the rest of the game after making 6 spectacular saves. Los Gatos' Susie Brewster scores against sophomore Paly GK Caroline McDonnell on a direct kick, launching a shot that arcs into the net a tiny bit below the top crossbar and above McDonnell's eagerly waiting fingertips for Los Gatos' lone goal of the game. Before the final whistle, Paly squeaks in one more goal from sophomore Kelly Jenks.
