Varsity Girls Soccer
Menlo School 7, Mercy-Burlingame 0
Date of competition: Thursday, January 19, 2012
It was only a week ago, following a 1-0 loss to Priory, that Menlo School girls' soccer coach Donoson FitzGerald said that his team needed to start scoring or face the consequences. His players evidently took that to heart with a 7-0 victory over host Mercy-Burlingame in West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) action on a wet Skyline College field on Thursday.
The Knights (3-1, 5-4-2) tallied five first-half goals. Junior Hannah Rubin scored Menlo's first goal at 12 minutes on a corner kick from sophomore Chandler Wickers. At 17 minutes, Wickers scored from 15 yards out off a through ball from sophomore Jaye Boissiere, who then scored from 15 yards out unassisted before Rubin and Wickers combined on another corner kick at 30 minutes.
Wickers added her second goal off a Kelly McConnell assist. The second-half goals were both scored by junior Julia Dressel, who like McConnell, usually shares time at goalie. The first came off a Boissiere assist and the second on a penalty kick.
