Varsity Girls Soccer
Priory 2, Sacred Heart Cathedral 1
Date of competition: Tuesday, December 21, 2010
The Priory girls' soccer team completed its successful run through the Burlingame Winter Showcase by defeating Sacred Heart Cathedral, 2-1, for the championship on Tuesday. The Panthers needed either a win or a tie to claim the crown. Priory actually trailed 1-0 in the first 15 minutes before getting the equalizer in the 20th minute on a standout individual effort by sophomore Mariana Galvan, who dribbled past two defenders just inside the left box, cut it back to her right foot and found the upper corner.
Priory sophomore keeper Liz Oliphant kept her team in the match with three significant saves before Galvan was fouled at the top of the penalty box with just four minutes left to play. While the SHC keeper was setting up her wall, Galvan took the shot, hitting the opposite post with it angling in for the winner. Molly Simpson, Lauren Barkman, Alex Schnabel and freshman Kaitlyn Teoman all were praised by associate head coach Henry Arredondo for their standout defensive play.
