Menlo School defeated host King's Academy, 2-1, to remain unbeaten in West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) girls' soccer action on Tuesday in Sunnyvale. Both teams had multiple scoring opportunities as the momentum swung back and forth. Menlo junior Sienna Stritter scored a goal in each half to spark the Knights (3-0, 5-2-4) to their victory.

Stritter's first goal came in the 30th minute off a nice penetrating pass from freshman Elena Gray. Stritter calmly placed her 15-yard shot into the corner of the goal. King's got the equalizer in the 39th minute when Michelle Maemone scored on a penalty kick. In the 17th minute of the second half, junior Emma LaPorte set Stritter up on a beautiful feed and Stritter again showed composure and great accuracy beating the goalkeeper from 12 yards out.

King's stepped up its attack and put a lot of pressure on Menlo in the final 15 minutes. Menlo senior keeper Kelly McConnell came up big, making numerous excellent saves and defender Jamie Corley cleared a loose ball off the goal line late to preserve the win. In particular, junior Amanda McFarland was instrumental in limiting the explosive King's attack to just one goal. Each team had nine shots on goal while McConnell recorded eight saves.
