The Menlo College women's soccer team played championship caliber Thursday but fell short of extending its longest winning streak of the season, dropping a 2-1 decision to visiting fourth-ranked Vanguard, which clinched the conference title. The Lions scored in the third minute, and the teams played even over the next 72 minutes. The Lions scored again in the 75th minute and the Oaks answered less than a minute later but could not find the equalizer. Vanguard improves to 13-1 and 7-0 in the Golden State Athletic Conference while the Oaks fall to 9-5, 3-4.

Griffith from deep
Lions' Allie Griffith lined up an open shot from 40 yards out and let loose a floater towards the box. The ball carried in the wind and found the smallest of cracks between crossbar and the left mitt of Paula Lara-Ruiz, who went on to record 12 saves.

Uribe's goal a mighty feat
After allowing a goal in the 75th minute, the Oaks trailed 2-0 against the best defensive team in the GSAC, and their chances looked bleak. Less than a minute later, however, hope was restored thanks to a brilliant play involving three seniors. Alexis Von Schottenstein found the ball at her feet at midfield. She faked towards the middle, then lined a beautiful pass down the wing to Sydney Richardson-Gorski. Richardson-Gorski then hit a cross to the back post that found the head of Karla Uribe, who scored her third goal of season. It was the fifth goal allowed by Vanguard keeper Haley Magana in 12 appearances.

Up Next...
The Oaks take on Hope International University in their final home match, on senior day Saturday. The Royals are 9-5-2, 3-2-2 in conference play. The Royals haven't lost in three weeks, and haven't allowed a goal in two weeks. If the Oaks can beat the Royals, they would host a home match in the first round of the GSAC playoffs against the Royals once again. Kick off for Saturday's match is set for 11 a.m.
