OAKS' REPORT . . . With Ricardo Urruela and Sacred Heart Prep grad Alex Vukic each scoring in the first half, the Menlo College men's soccer team remained undefeated in Cal Pac Conference play with a 2-0 victory over visiting Cal State Maritime on Tuesday. The Oaks (4-0, 7-3-1) host unbeaten Holy Names in a conference showdown Saturday at 3 p.m. Urruela has four goals in his past three games. Vukic scored his third goal in as many games a few minutes later. Menlo allowed the Keelhaulers (3-2 in Cal Pac play) just six total shots, while the Oaks took 33 of their own . . . Menlo College soccer freshman Steffany Dudley earned Cal Pac Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors after scoring a total of three goals during a week in which the Oaks went 1-0-1. It's the second weekly honor for Dudley, who is among the national leaders in goals per match and shots per match. Menlo (1-1, 3-8-2) hosts Holy Names in a conference match Saturday at 1 p.m. . . . Matt Pelesasa had experience with poor weather conditions and it came in handy for the Menlo College football team Saturday. Pelesasa threw for a pair of touchdowns within a two minute span of the second quarter, providing all the offense the Oaks would need in a 13-0 victory over host Webber International in Lake Wales, Fla. Webber International outgained Menlo, 244-61, in the nonconference battle but the Oaks stepped up big when they needed a stop. The Oaks (5-1) play at Pacific Lutheran on Saturday at 1 p.m.
