Menlo-Atherton rebounded from a morning loss to Bellarmine to defeat La Jolla 12-7 on Saturday afternoon. The victory put M-A in 7th place at the Scott Roche Invitational. Andrew Higgitt and Jed Springer led the way for the Bears with 4 goals apiece. Team captain Eric Wright drew 4 ejections and added 3 assists, both team highs. In the morning game M-A got off to a strong start and led the Bells 7-4 part way through the 3rd period, but Bellarmine outscored the Bears 6-2 in the 4th quarter to secure a 12-9 victory. Will Roller and Alex Semplinsky led the Bells with 3 tallies each. The Bears got 3 goals and 5 steals from senior Eric Wright. M-A returns to PAL play at 3PM on Monday when they host cross-town rival Menlo school.
