Varsity Boys Soccer
Menlo School 2, Harker 0
Date of competition: Wednesday, January 22, 2014
The Menlo School boys took over second place in the West Bay Athletic League soccer race with a 2-0 victory over host Harker on Wednesday. The Knights (3-1-1, 5-3-3) were quickly ahead after a mistake from the Eagles' goalkeeper led to a tap-in goal from sophomore forward Will Chisholm within the first minute of play, his fifth league goal of the season. The Knights drew confidence from their early lead and continued to threaten the Harker goal, with senior captain John Strong and junior midfielder Jackson Wagner both forcing good saves from the keeper. Harker created a few chances as the half wore on but Menlo junior goalie Alex Moore was up to the task, securing his third league shutout with a commanding display. Menlo pressured Harker repeatedly in the second half, looking for a second goal and the Knights were justly rewarded when junior midfielder Peter Rosston recovered a loose ball in front of the Eagles' box and fired a dipping shot into the top corner of the Harker goal with under 10 minutes to play.
