Varsity Girls Soccer
Castilleja 3, Willow Glen 2
Date of competition: Friday, December 3, 2010
The Castilleja soccer team evened its record in the Palo Alto Winter Classic with a 3-2 victory over Willow Glen on Friday. In the 34th minute, Castilleja junior Emily Mosbacher took the ball at midfield, faked a shot with her right foot, cut back to her left and put the shot into the upper right corner for a 1-0 lead. Ten minutes into the second half, Castilleja freshman Gabby Kaplan carried the ball through several Willow Glen defenders down the right side, executed a perfect cross to senior Rachel Brownell, who placed it in the lower left corner. Five minutes later, Mosbacher stole the ball about 30 yards out, cut quickly right and fired it into the upper right-side netting. The Rams' pressure resulted in two late goals and several close shots, but fell short as time expired.
