n a must win game, the Menlo boys' soccer team closed out the regular season Tuesday with a 4-1 victory over host Harker, and captured back-to-back West Bay Athletic League titles.
It is the Knights fifth league championship in program history. Menlo secured the title after a win over Harker last season as well, but this one came down to the wire. Entering the game, Menlo (10-1-1) led by a point with Sacred Heart second one point back and Harker third.
Just minutes into the game. Andre Gonzales Lombera, a sophomore, scored on an assist from Cisco Argueta. Gonzales Lombera sent a cross which was deflected then pushed in for an own goal. Senior goalie Colin Thomas knocked out a penalty kick, and the Knights took a 2-0 lead into halftime.
Alessandro Velasquez, a sophomore, scored on a pass from Gonzalez Lombera, who picked up the deflection for a 3-1 lead in the 78th minute. Amari Makasini, a senior, converted on an assist from sophomore Jacob Lee in final minutes to secure the win.
