Varsity Boys Soccer
Menlo School 2, Eastside Prep 0
Date of competition: Wednesday, January 18, 2012
With a balanced attack and an abundance of scoring chances, the Menlo School boys' soccer team defeated visiting Eastside Prep, 2-0, in a West Bay Athletic League match on Wednesday. The Knights improved to 3-1-1 in league (6-1-3 overall).
The first-half goal came off a long, penetrating solo run by senior defender Carson Witte, who found Ryan Karle and played him into space for his first of two goals on the day. The second-half scoring started with a John Strong creative dribble to Karle, who calmly found the far corner of the cage.
Menlo coach Mark Arya complimented his midfielders for their possession play and high work rate, among them Strong, Kyle Perez and Nick Batchelder. Outstanding in the back were Agustin Diaz, Glenn Baxter, Alec Drobac and Witte.
