The Menlo School boys set themselves up for a showdown for first place with a 2-0 win over visiting Eastside Prep in West Bay Athletic League soccer action Wednesday. The Knights (7-1-1, 9-3-3) will visit league-leading Sacred Heart Prep (9-0, 10-4-1) on Friday at 3:30 p.m., needing a victory to move within two points of the top spot.

Menlo started strongly and was ahead in the opening minutes. Senior captain Justin Wang played a perfect diagonal pass over the top of the Eastside defense to sophomore Keaton Shiveley on the left wing. Shiveley controlled the ball and found fellow sophomore Tyler McGraw in the middle of the box. McGraw settled the ball with his first touch and calmly slotted it into the side netting to give his side the lead.

The second half played out fairly similarly to the first as the Knights had several opportunities to extend their lead. After missing a few chances of his own, Shiveley again turned provider, this time nipping the ball off a Panthers defender before finding junior forward Jackson Wagner in the front of the box. Wagner passed the ball into the empty net to assure the win for his team. Junior goalie Alex Moore notched his third straight shutout and sixth in league with the help of solid defending from sophomores Michael Quezada, Andrew Arnold and Kian Seddighnezhad and seniors Wang and Travis Chambers.
