The Menlo School boys' varsity soccer team remained in a first-place tie in the West Bay Athletic League with Sacred Heart Prep after defeating visiting Eastside Prep, 2-0, on Friday to finish another successful week of league play.

Menlo (5-0, 8-2-1) started the game strongly, creating several dangerous chances but the Panthers' goalie was always up to the task. Menlo senior captain Max Parker broke the deadlock in the 34th minute after junior Jordan Vasquez won the ball back at midfield. Parker found sophomore Garrett Matsuda in space on the right wing and Matsuda served a dangerous ball into the box, which Parker took past his defender with his first touch and calmly finished into the side netting.

In the second half, Eastside Prep at times controlled possession but the Knights always looked comfortable in defense and dangerous on the counter. Vasquez was unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet as he got on the end of a couple of Parker runs but was unable to find the target.

Parker put the game out of reach with his second goal in the dying minutes after a good feed from fellow senior Glenn Baxter sent him in on goal. Senior captain Timmy Costa earned his seventh shutout of the season thanks to another great team effort. Seniors Jack Redman, Andrew Stepien, Glenn Baxter, junior Justin Wang and freshman Andrew Arnold have played an instrumental part in the Knights' success as they have only conceded one goal in league play. Menlo outshot Eastside Prep 15-5.

Menlo hosts WBAL co-leader Sacred Heart Prep on Wednesday at 2:45 p.m.
