In a duel of unbeatens, the Menlo School football team drew to within six points, but host South San Francisco held on in the fourth quarter to post a 41-21 victory in a PAL Ocean Division action Friday. It was closer than the final score would reveal. South City had a 27-14 halftime lead until Menlo closed the gap to 27-21.

“The defense did some really good things,” Menlo coach Mark Newton said. “I’m proud of the guys, how they stuck together until the end. The team showed a lot of promise.”

Senior defensive back Carson Badger and senior linebacker Dylan Mayer had strong performances for the Knights, as did juniors Connor Paterson and Connor Statsny. It was the first loss of the season for Menlo (0-1, 4-1), which had held its previous four opponents to 37 points combined. The Warriors improve to 5-0. Menlo next will host Half Moon Bay on Oct. 14 in the Knights’ homecoming game.
