The Menlo-Atherton girls' wear polo team advanced to the semifinals of the Central Coast Section Division I playoffs with a hard-fought 16-11 victory over No. Mitty on Saturday at Sacred Heart Prep. The No. 3 Bears (14-10) scored the final four goals to win. Marie Popp scored a season-high seven goals for the Bears while fellow senior Danielle Flanagan also had her season-best tally with four goals. Kari Newman followed with three and Emily Gran had two. M-A sophomore goalie Sierra Sheeper was especially impressive with nine saves. Another decisive factor was a total of 11 steals snatched by the M-A team including five by Gran. Mitty led, 6-5, at halftime and the outcome was in doubt until the M-A scoring sequence late in the fourth quarter. M-A will face No. 1 seed St. Francis in the semifinals on Tuesday at Gunn High at 5:30 p.m.
