The Paly girls’ soccer team continued their run of good form on Monday evening as they dominated Capuchino by the score of 7-0.

The game started off similar to the last with the opposition having a very decent chance or two, but failing to convert.

With the Vikings having some decent chances along the way as well, the first 15 minutes of the match were contested well.

The first breakthrough came for Paly when Ally Scheve (’18) got the ball past the Capuchino goalkeeper who had made some fine saves up to that point. The Vikes just kicked on from there, bagging two more goals both courtesy of defenders, from Reilly Filter (’17) and Talia Malchin (’17) respectively.

After a cagey opening 15 minutes, the Vikings were able to turn it on and head into halftime with a commanding 3-0 lead.

Six minutes into the second half, Chloe Japic (’20) scored the fourth goal for the Vikes and kept the onslaught coming. Over the next 14 minutes, Paly would grab three more goals, two coming from Emily Tomz (’18) and one from Tess Preising (’17).

“I thought was Emily Tomz played very well. Especially in the second half, Chloe Japic was very good and those two are starting to have some chemistry together which is really good,” coach Eric Seedman said.

After another commanding win, the team looks forward to their next match which is at home on Thursday against El Camino.
