Menlo-Atherton 2, Aragon 2
Playing without two senior starters (Julia Stoner and Kelley Eason), Menlo-Atherton managed a 2-2 draw with Aragon in a very physical match.
Aragon got on the board first when a long ball soared over the M-A defense. The ball was initially blocked by Ilana Winawer, but the loose ball was finished by an Aragon forward.
The Bears out-shot the Dons 6-2 in the first half, but it was the Dons who took the 1-0 half time lead.
In the second half, M-A found the equalizer when Cayla Stillman fed Amanda Wiseman to even the score at 1-1.
The Bears kept pressing and scored the go-ahead goal when Jordan Olesen crossed a ball to Sarah McLeod who finished with a nicely controlled one-touch volley into the net.
With 10 minutes to go in the second half and the Bears up 2-1, a ball that wasn't cleared by the M-A defense found its way to Erica Martinez, who was able to tie the score for the Dons.
Alex Manu and Kevin Hahn combined for 23 points as Aragon took down Menlo-Atherton 51-37. While the two were big for the Dons, none was bigger than Trevor Pagaduan and his 14 points.
The Bears were without star scorer Royce Branning and it cost them. Oliver Bucka led their charge with 16 points.
Menlo 1, Woodside Priory 0
The Menlo boys’ varsity soccer team beat Woodside Priory 1-0 on a late goal by midfielder Matt Joss.
The Knights (7-3-3 overall, 5-1-1 in league) were under pressure from the opening whistle as Priory had a few early chances. After strong early pressure by the Panthers, Menlo reacted well and controlled the rest of the first half, creating a few good chances in the process.
Forward Jackson Wagner had a strong header from 12 yards out after some good combination play with Andrew Arnold that the Priory goalie did well to save.
A few minutes later, some clever passing and movement in the midfield led to striker Tyler McGraw getting open in the box for a shot but again the Panthers goalie was up to the task.
In the second half, with Menlo pushing hard for a winner, the ball fell outside the box to midfielder Keaton Shiveley, playing in his first game back after a three-week layoff due to injury.
Shiveley served a ball into the box and Joss was the first to react, rising high to head the ball into the side netting.
Carlmont 57, Burlingame 38
A strong first half was more than enough momentum for Carlmont on Wednesday as they improved to 6-1 in PAL South Division play with a 57-38 win over Burlingame.
The Scots jumped out to a 26-17 lead at halftime and really sealed the deal with a strong defensive fourth quarter.
Anisah Smith continues her strong scoring season. The guard poured in 27 points. Sabrina Miller was a strong complement, adding 11. Alexa Bayangos scored eight.
No Burlingame player scored in double-digits.
