Menlo-Atherton senior Mario Rodriguez scored three goals to help the Bears defeat host Sequoia, 6-1, and remain on top of the PAL Bay Division boys' soccer standings on Wednesday. M-A improved to 9-2 in league (12-3 overall) and stayed ahead of second place Burlingame (7-2-1), which suffered a 1-0 loss to South San Francisco. Sequoia (6-4-1) stayed in third place but eliminated from title contention with three matches left in the regular season.

Rodriguez tallied the opening before Kyle Bryan scored late in the first half with what proved to be the winning goal. Rodriguez added a penalty kick right before halftime for a 3-0 lead. After Sequoia scored, Rodriguez got his third goal and Kyle Smith made it 5-1. M-A sophomore Ray Malan provided the final goal on a penalty kick after being taken down in the box with time nearly expired.

The Bears, who have won seven straight, visit South San Francisco on Friday before hosting Burlingame on Monday and Woodside next Wednesday, both at 4 p.m. M-A currently has 27 points and needs to win only twice in its final three matches to claim the league title.
