The Menlo School girls' soccer team took over sole possession of first place in the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) race with a 5-0 victory over visiting Notre Dame-San Jose on Thursday. The Knights improved to 6-1 in the division (8-4-2 overall) and has 18 points. Erstwhile co-leader Priory was upended by Sacred Heart Prep, 2-1, leaving the Panthers (15 points) in third place behind the Gators (16 points).

Menlo opened the scoring in the 17th minute on a penalty kick by sophomore Jaye Boissiere. Sophomore Chandler Wickers placed a 12-yard shot inside the far post after a cross by freshmen Alexandra Walker at 23 minutes for a 2-0 lead. Junior Priya Medberry connected on a 12-yard shot low to the far post off a long cross from Boissiere at 32 minutes.

In the second half, sophomore Lindsay Karle scored from 12 yards out with a strong shot off an assist from senior Elyse Adler at 23 minutes. Then Wickers beautifully volleyed in a Boissiere cross from 10 yards out at 25 minutes.

Menlo's midfield controlled the ball throughout the match and gave the Knights a 25-6 shot advantage. The Menlo back line consistently were first to the ball and limited the NDSJ attack. Junior keepers Julia Dressel (four saves) and Kelly McConnell (two saves) earned the shutout.
