Varsity Girls Soccer
Menlo School 1, Notre Dame-SJ 0
Date of competition: Thursday, February 17, 2011
The Menlo School girls’ soccer team has finished third in the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) soccer race three times in three years. Perhaps the good news is that the Knights also have advanced to the Central Coast Section playoffs all three seasons after winning a WBAL playoff game for the league’s third automatic berth.
Menlo accomplished that once again on Thursday with a 1-0 victory over WBAL Skyline champ Notre Dame-San Jose in Atherton. The Knights (6-4-9) got the winning goal from freshman Amanda McFarland, who scored from 15 yards out in the 21st minute of the first half off an assist from senior Kelly Cavan. Menlo controlled the ball for much of the match despite not scoring again. Shannon Lacy, Alex Tom, Maya Norman, and Sophie Sheeline led the Knights, who will begin CCS playoff action next week.
