The Menlo School girls' soccer team opened up a five-point lead in the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) with a very big 1-0 victory over visiting Priory on Thursday. The Knights improved to 8-1 in league for 24 points and 10-4-2 overall while the Panthers fell to 6-2 (18 points) and 9-4-2 overall.

The teams battled to a scoreless first half, even though Menlo nearly converted a corner kick late in the first half as senior Elle Laub's header of a Chandler Wickers' corner was cleared off the line by a Priory post player. Menlo came out firing in the second half and senior Sophie Sheeline's header went off the crossbar early on. Menlo kept up the pressure creating some good opportunities throughout the second half.

Menlo sophomore Jaye Boissiere scored the game winner on a 22-yard direct free kick into the upper far corner of the goal in the 32nd minute of the second half. This was first place Menlo's seventh straight win. Defensively, Menlo was led by its backs -- senior Shannon Lacy, junior Hannah Rubin, senior Alex Tom, junior Rachel Pinsker, sophomore Sienna Stritter, and freshmen Alexander Walker.

Junior goalkeepers Julia Dressel (three saves) and Kelly McConnell (three saves) earned their seventh shutout in the past 8 games. Menlo outshot Priory, 15-8.
