The Menlo School girls’ soccer team remained perfect in league play with a 2-0 victory over host Castilleja in West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) action Thursday at the Mayfield Soccer Complex. The Knights (10-0, 12-2-4), who clinched the league title last week, ran their unbeaten streak to 13. Menlo will close out the regular season with a pair of road matches against Sacred Heart Prep (Saturday, 3 p.m.) and Priory on Tuesday before the Feb. 16 CCS seeding meeting.

Menlo outshot Castilleja, 11-4, and scored both of its goals in the second half. Five minutes after intermission, junior Sienna Stritter was tripped while she was dribbling in the penalty box. Senior Hannah Rubin converted the penalty kick and the Knights led 1-0.

Fifteen minutes later, Menlo connected on several long passes. Chandler Wickers took three quick dribbles before finding fellow junior Lindsay Karle cutting to the goal. Karle hit her 12-yard shot low in the corner to get past the Gators (2-3-5 league). Menlo got a strong defensive effort from senior defender Rachel Pinsker and junior midfielder Amanda MacFarland. Senior Julia Dressel made a pair of saves in the first half and freshman Schuyler Tilney-Volk picked up two more in the second.
