The Menlo School girls' soccer team strengthened its hold on first place in the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) with a 1-0 victory over visiting Priory on Thursday. The Knights improved to 6-0 in league (8-2-4 overall) while the Panthers fell to 1-2-3 in league (2-4-5 overall). Menlo has outscored its league opponents,18-3, but Thursday's was a hard-fought win.

"It was a tough game," said Menlo coach Donoson FitzGerald. "Even though we struggled, and didn't play our best, they found a way to win, and that's a real tribute to the girls. In the first half of the league season (six games) the girls have shown that they are the best team. It's in their hands. No one can catch us if we play well. They're in a great position in league, but we need to keep striving to be our best."

Against Priory, in the fourth minute of the second half, junior Sienna Stritter took a pass from sophomore defender Jamie Corley, took few steps, dribbling down the middle before sending the ball to the right corner from 18 yards out. Stritter has team-leading 10 goals, including seven in the past five matches.

"She's been outstanding in all areas of her game and in particular has created and scored many beautiful goals," FitzGerald said.

Schuyler Tilney-Volk, a freshman, got her third shutout in as many starts, notching seven saves. She got a boost from defenders Alexandra Walker, Hannah Rubin and Amanda MacFarland.
