“It was a sad way to end our [regular] season,” said senior goalie Jackie Au. “It was fun this year and I have some great bruises—which meant I saved a lot of goals.” She had 10 saves in this game.

Ally Stahl was knocked over by her opponents on a scoring play.

Ally Stahl, one of Pali’s most consistent scorers this season, scored three goals in the final, and said, “We tried as hard as we could, but it was a tough loss.” Lily Wollman and Isabel McKinlay also scored. During the regular season, the two teams split their two games, while the Dolphins easily beat their other league opponents, Westchester, Hamilton and VAAS.

“Both teams played well today,” Economou said. “I felt this game was even, it could have gone either way.”

At the seeding meeting on Sunday, 13th-ranked Palisades (Chaminade had the top ranking), would learn who it will face in the first round of the CIF playoffs this week.
