Varsity Boys Soccer
Menlo School 3, Priory 0
Date of competition: Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Just three minutes into the match, the Menlo School boys’ soccer team set the tone for a 3-0 victory over host Priory on Wednesday in West Bay Athletic League action. The Knights (1-1-1, 4-1-3 overall) jumped out early with a clinical goal by junior Ryan Karle in the third minute of play off an assist from junior Max Parker. Karle and Parker connected again in similar fashion just over 30 minutes later to go into halftime up 2-0. With two minutes left to play, senior Lyall Cooper crossed to freshman Jackson Wagner, who neatly slotted home the final goal of the game.
Junior keeper Tim Costa recorded the shutout. Solid defensive play in front of him was led by center backs Alec Drobac, a senior, and Jack Redman, a junior. Out wide defensively, senior Agustin Diaz and junior Glenn Baxter had nice performances as did the midfield of freshman Kyle Perez, junior Nick Batchelder and sophomore John Strong.
