Cota, a senior forward from Santa Clara, earned offensive honors for the second time this season after receiving recognition last month.

He powered in four goals to lead a Menlo offense that scored big wins over Pacific Union and Simpson to remain atop the North Division of the Cal Pac at 4-2 (5-3-2 overall).

Cota is in the top four in the Cal Pac in points per game, goals per game, shots per game, and shots on goal along with leading Menlo with 10 goals on the season.

Cisneroz, from Morgan Hill, earned defensive honors after she anchored the conference's stingiest defense during a pair of wins last week as Menlo improved to 4-0 in league (7-1 overall).

The junior defender won a number of critical balls in the air and helped control the pace of the game in wins against UC Merced and Simpson. The Oaks, who have allowed only five goals in eight matches this season, now have won seven straight -- including five shutouts.
