Kayla Hart scored in the 59th minute and the Woodside High School Wildcats held off a previously undefeated Mountain View team to win the Central Coast Section's Open Division girls soccer championship on Friday, March 4, at Santa Clara University's Buck Shaw Field. The final score was Woodside 1 and Mountain View 0.
This Woodside team had previously defeated Santa Teresa 1-0 and Mitty 2-0 to advance into the championship game.
This is the first year for CCS 'Open' Division in soccer, which allows the highest ranked schools to compete against each other regardless of their enrollment.
In 1977 the Woodside girls team won the first CCS championship for girls soccer. Nearly 40 years later this team made history as well.
