For the third time this season, Menlo beat San Ramon Valley. Friday's score was 8-5.

"It's hard to do that against a tough team like San Ramon," said Menlo coach Jack Bowen. "And it's doubly nice to do it this season after losing to them in our head to head match last season.

Menlo (18-0) was led on defense by Niko Bhatia with 4 steals and 3 blocks, and Bhatia also lead all goal scorers with 3 goals. Sam Untrecht and Jayden Kunwar each added two.

Menlo has a bye-week in league next week as they prepare for the prestigious North-South tournament, facing off against Santa Barbara in the opening round.
