Panthers News · Palo Girls Soccer Roars into Sunset Final with win over Gorman


Palo Verde’s girl’s soccer team turned back Bishop Gorman in an incredible Sunset Regioin semifinal game featuring two of the state’s best.

After a scoreless first half, the teams traded four goals in the next 40 minutes. Madison Hernandez’s goal with six minutes remaining appeared to be a winner for Palo Verde, when the freshman parlayed a slide tackle into a long shot attempt that sneaked inside the left post.

Senior Macee Barlow headed in the winning goal five minutes into the second overtime to lift the Panthers over top-seeded Bishop Gorman 3-2 in a marathon of a Class 4A Sunset Region semifinal.

The Panthers now face rival Arbor View for the right to head to the state tournament on Saturday morning at 12 pm.
