The top-seeded Menlo-Atherton girls rallied from a 2-0 halftime deficit and posted a 3-2 triumph over No. 10-seeded Branham to capture the Central Coast Section Division I soccer title on a stormy Saturday night at Valley Christian High in San Jose. For the Bears (15-4-3), it was their first-ever section crown. Things looked bleak for M-A when Branham (13-8-3) took what seemed to be a commanding halftime lead in rainy, windy conditions. The Bears, however, battled back with senior Sarah McLead scoring to trim the deficit to 2-1 before adding a second goal in the 74th minute to deadlock the match. With time running out, M-A's Josephine Cotto launched a hard shot into the top left corner for the game-winning goal.
