Getting a little unexpected help, the Sacred Heart Prep boys’ soccer team moved to within one victory of clinching the West Bay Athletic League title with a 4-1 triumph over visiting Menlo School on Wednesday. The Gators (10-0-1, 15-0-1) now have 31 points and need only to beat visiting Eastside Prep on Friday (3:30 p.m.) to wrap up the division crown.

Second-place Priory (8-3) was upset by King’s Academy (7-1-3) on Tuesday and both those teams are tied for second with 24 points with three matching remaining. The best they can do is finish with 33 points. One more win for the Gators will give them 34 points.

Sophomore Joseph Bolous scored two goals to pace the win over Menlo, which mirrored the teams’ first meeting, also a 4-1 win by SHP. Marcelino Perez and Roberto Ojeda added the other goals, with Ojeda providing an assist.

“I felt like we deserved a lot more goals, but the (Menlo) goalkeeper made good saves,” said SHP coach Armando Del Rio. “Overall, we played pretty well at home. However, we were disappointed to give up a soft goal at the end of the game. My goal right now is to keep the team sharp, disciplined, focused for what is to come in CCS. Although, we still have not guaranteed our spot.“
