Menlo College Men’s Soccer entered Tuesday’s matinee with the William Jessup Warriors looking to pick up a trio of critical points in their race for the GSAC conference tournament. The Warriors had other ideas and came out hot in the first half, scoring three unanswered goals after Menlo took an early 1-0 lead with a goal in the second minute. Despite the Oaks’ best efforts which included a late second half goal, they were unable to find the equalizer and fell 3-2 in Rocklin.

Things looked good from the onset as Luis Nunez found the back of the net in just the second minute for his sixth goal of the season. Nunez got a look after Connor Buckley set up Ike Arinze for a shot that was deflected back out into the box. Nunez took advantage and headed it into the net to make it 1-0.

From that point forward it was all William Jessup in the first half. Justin Soria scored his seventh goal of the season in the 15th minute then Conner Entz added his fifth of the campaign in the 27th minute. The third goal of the half came off the foot of Justin Mitchell, his second of the year, in the 44th minute to send it into the break with the Oaks trailing 3-1.

Menlo’s Ike Arinze created a scoring opportunity for himself late in the second half and took the one-on-one chance all the way for his second goal of the year. The goal in the 89th minute pulled the Oaks within one but time was not on their side and they fell 3-2.

William Jessup held the advantage in total shots, 11-9 but the Oaks took the honors for shots on goal with eight compared to just six for the Warriors.

The loss drops the Oaks to 8-5-2 overall and 2-4-2 in conference play while William Jessup improves to 5-8-1 overall and 2-5 in GSAC play.

Next for the Oaks is a Thursday afternoon conference matchup with Westmont at 1 p.m. Senior Day festivities will take place prior to the match.
