Varsity Boys Soccer
Sacred Heart Prep 4, Menlo 0
Date of competition: Friday, January 22, 2010
Back-to-back losses in December evidently helped turn around the season for the Sacred Heart Prep boys’ soccer team. Since then, the Gators haven’t lost. They won their eighth straight on Friday, a 4-0 blanking of rival Menlo in a West Bay Athletic League match on the Knights’ field. It was the second win over Menlo in just a week, opening the second half of the league season while strengthening the Gators’ hold on first place at 8-0 (10-3 overall). Jack Odell scored two goals, the first assisted by Andrew Liotta and the second by Kyle Scherba, who gave SHP a 2-0 lead at the 60-minute mark on an assist from Robert Ojeda. The Gators took a 1-0 halftime lead when freshman Joseph Bolous tallied an unassisted goal just a minute before halftime. Menlo fell to 3-3-1 in league (5-6-1 overall and now is 14 points behind the Gators in the league race.
