Menlo kept its very slim hopes alive for a possible tie for second place in the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) girls' soccer race with a 6-0 victory over visiting Notre Dame-San Jose on Monday. The Knights improved to 7-2-2 in league for 23 points (11-4-5 overall) with one match remaining. Should second-place Sacred Heart Prep (8-0-2) lose to Priory on Tuesday and Mercy-Burlingame on Thursday, Menlo could force a tie should it beat Mercy-Burlingame on Tuesday.

The top two teams in the Foothill Division receive automatic berths into the Central Coast Section playoffs. The third-place team must face the Skyline Division champ in a playoff for the league's third automatic berth.

While it's quite likely that Menlo will finish third, the Knights nonetheless gave themselves hope with two first-half goals by Sarah Swig (unassisted) and Nicole Fasola (assist Allie Crandell). Senior Madi Shove scored three times in the second half and Katie Baum added the final tally to complete the blanking. Swig had two assists on Shove's goals.
