The Menlo-Atherton girls made a strong move to secure a possible berth in the Central Coast Section soccer playoffs by tying PAL Bay Division champion Woodside, 1-1, to wrap up the regular season on Thursday. Woodside (12-0-2, 16-1-2) got on the board only three minutes into the game when junior forward Jillienne Aguilera pounded in a miscleared ball by the M-A defense. The fourth-place Bears (7-4-3, 10-5-4) didn't give up, however, and thwarted the Wildcats for the rest of the game. Senior M-A keeper Jacqueline Foody came up with two great back-to-back saves over the top in the 27th and 29th minutes, respectively, to keep Woodside from scoring. The M-A defense also came up strong against five Woodside corner kicks in the first half to help ruin the Wildcats' Senior Day.

In the second half, the Bears put a bit more pressure on the Wildcats. M-A senior forward Annie Harrier was taken down in the box in the 57th minute, which set up a penalty kick for the Bears. Senior defender Taryn Harpell calmly placed the ball just inside the left post, beating Woodside sophomore keeper Sarah Preston for the equalizer. M-A and Woodside battled the remainder of the half with increased intensity, but the game ended in a deadlock.
