Oaks men complete sweep of road conference soccer matches

 

Isaac Miselewicz scored late in the first half and the Menlo College men's soccer team made it stand Sunday in a 1-0 victory over host Biola in a Golden State Athletic League match.

The Oaks (2-0, 8-2) ended their first weekend of conference play atop the standings. Menlo travels to play at Arizona Christian on Thursday.

The first half of play was full of offensive action. Ryan Onizuka and Erik Emanuelsson had their shots turned away in the first ten minutes of play and the Oaks blocked Biola's first three shots of the game.

In the 44th minute, Miselewicz got through the back line and scored on a shot from about the penalty spot. Efrain Bonilla set up Miselewicz.

Biola was thwarted on every possible chance to score, managing one shot on goal. Biola may have outshot the Oaks for the game with an 11-6 advantage, but Menlo led in shots on goal with a 3-1 advantage.

It was an extremely physical game as both teams combined for six yellow cards with Menlo being presented with four of them.

Menlo senior Danielle Robinson scored midway through the first half and host Biola tied it in the final three minutes of regulation play on a penalty kick in Sunday's 1-1 GSAC draw in La Mirada.

The Oaks (0-1-1, 5-2-2) manged to put the first dent in the 11th-ranked Eagles (1-0-1, 7-0-1) record, a good momentum boost heading into Thursday's game at Arizona Christian.

Robinson scored with an assist from Danielle McCarthy, who sent the ball into the penalty area. Robinson had a point-blank shot to put Menlo ahead.

Oaks goalie Kaylin Swart recorded four of her eight saves in the first half, but was called for the foul that set up the penalty kick.

Both sides had opportunities in the overtime periods, though both goalies were able to successfully deflect any potential game winner.
