Menlo women go on the offensive for soccer victory


Danielle McCarthy and Brittany Squarcia each contributed a goal and an assist as the Menlo College women's soccer team downed visiting Northwest Christian, 4-0, for its second consecutive win, a nonconference affair on Tuesday.

Menlo relied on an offensive attack that held an 11-2 advantage in shots on goal. The Oaks defense stifled the Beacons.

Jocelyn Aguilar scored a goal for Menlo.
McCarthy took a nice pass from Squarcia and knocked the ball it in the back of the net, giving Menlo the early advantage eight minutes into the contest.

Jocelyn Aguilar got in on the action, scoring with a Savannah Schmidt assist in the 14th minute to make it 2-0. Off the corner kick, Schmidt went long and found an open Aguilar who created space in front of the net and sent it home.

The Oaks added two more goals in the first 11 minutes of the second half to take command of the match.

Squarcia was the first to find the back of the net, when she positioned herself in the box and got a rebound and buried it with her left foot for her team-leading fourth goal of the season.

Brittany Wisecarver got in on the scoring action six minutes later, scoring with an assist from McCarthy. It was the second career goal for Wisecarver and second in as many matches.

Menlo turns its attention to Saturday's Cal Pac opener against visiting Embry-Riddle. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. following the men's game, which is set for 11 a.m.
