The Tsunami, a local U12 girls AYSO soccer team, finished third at last weekend’s Area P tournament. In Saturday’s quarterfinal, the Palisades team defeated Santa Monica, 3-1, on goals by Syd Krasny, Naomi Markman and Cassie Jernigan. Sunday’s semifinal was a 1-1 tie with Culver City. Alana Entin tallied her first goal of the season for the Tsumanis. The game was decided by penalty kicks, with Culver City prevailing, 4-3. The Tsunami then won its afternoon consolation game, 2-1, over Beverly Hills. Jernigan scored both Tsunami goals. Palisades’ defense was led by Jen Krems, Annie Elander, Tara Vahdani, Angelica Harrup and Maisie Lynton. The goal was expertly defended by all-star Angeline Holt, Victoria Lancey was strong at midfield and Julie Takakjian also excelled. Rounding out the squad was vastly improved Anai Finnie. Head Coach Troy Elander and assistant David Markman were as sorry as their players to see the season end.
