Woodside Penguins triumph at tourney

A parcel of penguins from Woodside fought their way to first place in a recent tournament, beating highlighters and gladiators, among others.

The AYSO Woodside girls under 12 team, known as the Tuxedo Penguins, traveled to Foster City on Dec. 8 to play against teams from AYSO Section 2, which includes the Pacific Northwest, Northern California and Northern Nevada.

To reach the tournament, the Woodside girls had to beat local teams from Palo Alto, Mountain View, Menlo Park, Los Altos and Sunnyvale. After triumphing in an area tournament on Dec. 1 and 2 with a 4-0 record, the Penguins were on their way to Foster City.

The AYSO Section 2 tournament victory gives the team the opportunity for further advancement at a Southern California tournament in March 2008.

To clench the tournament championship, the Penguins battled against the Gladiators from Brisbane, California. During a tough game, Annie Kingman and Olivia Stangvik scored goals, and with Maddie Burger in the goal, they beat Brisbane four goals to two.

Coaches are Jim Kingman and Per Alftin.

Team members are: Morgan Dressel, Olivia Stangvik, Alexa Zangrillo, Elizabeth Putnam, Emily Glazer, Lauren McHugh, Elisa Merten, Celeste Stoker, Gianna Rosoti, Hayley Korman, Maddie Burger, Taira Hovden, Annie Kingman, Christine Alftin and Victoria Ellis.
