Menlo also went with a two-keeper approach with Alex Coates-McDowall getting the start and playing the first 28 minutes before Nathan Bachand came on to close it out.
David Beary led the team in shots with four (two on frame) followed by Salvador Hererra-Farias with three and Luis Nunez and Johnny Ensch with two apiece.
Monday's loss marks the final career game for four Menlo seniors: Andrew Nyberg, Connor Buckley, Christian Daog and Yohan Mejia.
