Varsity Boys Soccer
Menlo School 6, Priory 1
Date of competition: Friday, February 21, 2014
Menlo School defeated visiting Priory, 6-1, for its third straight win in West Bay Athletic League boys' soccer on Friday. The Knights, however, may see their bid for a CCS berth fall short due to the King's Academy win over SHP. The Knights (12-5-3 overall, 10-3-1 in league) knew they needed a win and SHP not to lose to clinch the second spot in league and the automatic CCS bid that goes with it. They also knew all they could do was take care of their business and wasted no time as they took the lead within the first two minutes. Sophomore defender Andrew Arnold played a great thru ball to junior midfielder Peter Rosston who beat the Panthers' goalie.
A few minutes later, junior midfielder Chris Strong fed his brother, senior captain John Strong, a cross at the top of the box. John trapped it first time and fired a sweeping half volley into the bottom corner to double the Knights' lead and provide the eventual winning tally. John Strong added another goal minutes later off a pass from sophomore striker Tyler McGraw. Leading scorer sophomore striker Will Chisholm made it 4-0 after good service from sophomore defender Michael Quezada. Menlo added a fifth goal before halftime after Chisholm served a dangerous ball to the back post that a Priory defender turned into his own net. Priory pulled a goal back early in the second half before senior Kevin Walker scored Menlo's final goal off a good cross from freshman Zach Davila.
