The Sacred Heart Prep boys' soccer team walked off its field on Monday without a victory and without a lot of smiles. The Gators didn't win, but they didn't lose. And, their scoreless tie was nearly as good as a triumph, as far as what it accomplished.

After being Menlo in their first meeting, 3-2, Monday's tie proved even bigger for the Gators -- it earned SHP the West Bay Athletic League championship on the final day of the regular season for both teams. Sacred Heart Prep finished 10-3-1 in league for 31 points (11-8-1 overall) while Menlo settled for second at 8-2-4 for 28 points (11-4-5 overall). Both teams are headed for the Central Coast Section playoffs, where both likely will be seeded in Division III and quite possibly face each other once again.
