Varsity Boys Soccer
Eastside Prep 1, Menlo 0
Date of competition: Wednesday, January 13, 2010
The West Bay Athletic League boys' soccer race just got a lot more interesting on Wednesday when Eastside Prep handed host Menlo a 1-0 defeat. The victory moved the Panthers (3-1-1, 3-2-3) into a second-place tie with the Knights (3-1-1, 5-4-1), both of whom trail first-place Sacred Heart Prep (5-0), which hosts Menlo on Friday at 3 p.m.
Eastside Prep senior Darryl Sepulveda, who during the fall was a standout cross-country runner, provided the winning goal in the first half off an assist from Javier Magana in the 15th minute. Menlo had its chances, out-shooting the visitors 18-5. The Knights' Vikram Padval hit the right post in the 11th minute and Dawson Williams missed a shot wide right a few minutes later before Eastside scored. Panthers' goalie Manuel Chavez had eight saves, two big ones coming late in the second half to preserve the victory.
