M-A soccer players honored on All-PAL Bay Division teams

 

The Menlo-Atherton boys' soccer team is enjoying one of its best seasons in quite awhile, and one big reason behind that success has been the play of junior Edgardo Molina. The forward has scored 19 goals in 18 matches for the Bears (13-3-2), who shared the PAL Bay Division championship with Burlingame this season.

The Bears' 13 victories are the most since the 2004 season while the three losses are the fewest in more than a decade. For his contributions to that success, Molina has been named Forward of the Year in the PAL Bay Division.

Menlo-Atherton also had Aaron Oro, Gerry Cruz and William Cabral honored on the all-league first team.
