Menlo succumbed to a familiar problem in a 1-0 loss to No. 2 Scotts Valley in the CCS Division III semifinals on Tuesday -- a lack of offense. The No. 3 seeded Knights (11-8-4) struggled earlier in the season during PAL Bay Division action while players recovered from injuries. Once the team got healthy, the goals came as did the wins. On Tuesday, however, Menlo coach Donoson FitzGerald was dumbfounded at his team's inability to score. "It didn't seem like we ever connected any passes or created any chances," he said. Scotts Valley scored the game-winner in the 42nd minute on a shot from within the penalty box. Menlo keeper Liz Daly got a hand on it, but was unable to wrap it up and the loose ball was pounded home from just in front of the cage. Daly is one of four Menlo seniors who played their final prep match. The others include Lauren Brown, Allison Carlisle and Julia Raab. The Knights return nine juniors, three sophomores and one freshman for their current roster.
