At home for the first time in 2019, Menlo College Women's Soccer looked to put Thursday's loss behind them. Taking on Simpson University, a team off to a 2-0 start, the Oaks used a very early goal and then three more in the second half to take control of the match and take down the Redhawks by a final of 4-0. With the win, Menlo improves to 2-1 with a pair of shutout wins, while Simpson falls to 2-1 with their first defeat of the new year.

That Didn't Take Long
The Oaks put offensive pressure on from the get-go, and it was Cassidy Schiveley who cashed in first. Thanks to a corner kick taken from Kori-Ann Koverman, the ball ricocheted off a Redhawks defender and found a vacant Schiveley all alone at the top of the box. Finding a lane to shoot, she fired and went top corner of the goal for her first goal as an Oak, just 4:14 into the contest. The Salinas native put Menlo in front, a lead they would never surrender, but it was just the beginning of a great day for her.

Senior Striker
The Oaks only has one senior, Ariadna Ramirez. Playing the striker position, Ramirez got a chance to do just that with some help from Schiveley in the first few minutes of the second half. Just 2:35 into the second stanza, Ramirez got a ball from Schiveley and rifled it into the back of the net for her first goal of the new year and her sixth in her Menlo career. The Puebla, Mexico native made it 2-0 Oaks, and the barrage would continue from there.

Twice is Nice
Menlo added two more goals later in the second half as they continued to mount relentless pressure on the Redhawks. First, it was Meghan Giamona who found the back of the net at 69:12 off the assist from Camryn Collins, and then it was Madison Braun with the helper from Berta Corominas at 84:07. All told, the Oaks were able to score three times in the second half, while putting nine shots up, with seven of those being on frame in the second half. With the offense rolling, it seems the Oaks have made drastic improvements from their first two games of the season.

History on Their Side
Menlo has won 12 consecutive matches from the Redhawks, who haven't beaten Menlo since 2011.

Up Next
Menlo stays at home and a Wednesday, September 11 date with Cal State University Monterey Bay. Kick-off is scheduled for 1:30 pm.
