The Menlo School boys wrapped up their 2014 soccer schedule with 4-2 nonleague win over visiting San Mateo on Friday. The Knights (1-2-1) started the game strongly and were quickly ahead. Senior captain Peter Rosston played a chipped ball over the Bearcats' defense that junior midfielder Tyler McGraw beat the keeper to before heading into the empty net. Emboldened by its first lead of the season, Menlo pushed on and added a second a few minutes later. Junior captain Andrew Arnold played a cross into the box that junior striker Will Chisholm flicked on to freshman forward Dylan Williams, who calmly beat the keeper for his first varsity goal.

The Bearcats got themselves back in the game, pulling one back after a miscommunication in the Menlo defense allowed a deflected shot to sneak past senior keeper Alex Moore. A few minutes later, the game was level after the Knights failed to fully clear a corner, allowing a San Mateo forward to head the ball into the open net.

The second half started under heavy rain and the Knights quickly re-established their lead. Chisholm played a teasing cross into McGraw, who was taken down by the keeper as he tried to score. Chisholm calmly stepped up and scored the penalty for his second goal of the season. A few minutes later, the game was out of reach. Chisholm was again involved, winning a header off a corner that the keeper could not hold, allowing Dylan Williams to tap home his second goal of the game. Menlo next takes on host Santa Cruz on Jan. 2.
