Cordova, Menlo College record a 1-0 shutout over Corban

Brittany Squaria scored early in the second half and goalkeeper Jasmine Cordova and the Menlo College defense made sure it stood up as the Lady Oaks topped Corban, 1-0, in a nonconference women's soccer match in Medord, Ore. on Friday.

Cordova recorded six saves for Menlo (2-1) as the Warriors attempted 16 shot overall compared to Menlo's six shots, three on goal.

"Jasmine played really well as did Nina Lee, Rielle Dopke, Kayla Cisneroz and Savannah Schmidt," Oaks coach Keith Lambert said. "It was a great all-around team effort, but I was specifically happy with the play of those back five."

The Lady Oaks meet Southern Oregon at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Squarcia's goal came on a 1-on-1 breakaway set up by Dopke from beyond midfield. Squarcia went far-post, just past the keeper.
