Redwood 16, Menlo-Atherton 8
The Bears fell behind 4-0 and not even a seven-goal performance from Amanda Wiseman could prevent them from falling to the Giants.
M-A (3-5-1 overall) allowed 11 goals in the first half, but stiffened in the second half, allowing just five goals. Hannah Wilson had a strong defensive performance for M-A.
Sacred Heart Prep 9, Los Gatos 7

Serra 5, Riordan 4
The Padres picked up their first West Catholic Athletic League win of the season Tuesday, but it wasn’t easy.
Serra needed a walk-off single from Angelo Bortolin to prevent the Padres from falling to 0-4 in WCAL play. It was the second RBI of game for Bortolin, who drove in a run with a first-inning double.
Sean Watkins had a busy day on the mound and at the plate. Watkins pitched three innings, giving up just one hit and allowing no earned runs. Offensively, he had a pair of doubles.
Matt Blais earned the win with two shutout innings of work.
Menlo-Atherton 9, El Camino 8
For the second time in a week, the Bears outlasted a team from South San Francisco.
After beating South City 1-0 last Thursday, M-A (2-0 PAL Ocean, 4-2 overall) outslugged the Colts Tuesday.
The Bears earned the win on an Erin Goode RBI single to center in the bottom of the seventh inning, driving in Lili Huerta, who had reached on an error and moved to third on an Emily Katz single. This after El Camino had tied the score with three runs in the top of the inning.
Katz picked up the win in the pitcher’s circle, allowing just one earned run. The other seven Colts’ runs were all unearned.
After M-A took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second, El Camino rallied for four runs in the top of the fourth, but M-A cam back with three in the bottom of the frame for a 5-4 lead and added three more in the sixth for an 8-5 advantage.
Sacred Heart Carthedral 4, Aragon 3
The Irish scored three times in the top of the first and then held off the Dons in a non-league game Monday.
Aragon out-hit SHC 8-4, but could not translate those hits into runs. The Dons scored two runs in the bottom of the third, but SHC got one of them back in the top of the fifth. Aragon closed the gap to one run by scoring in the bottom of the fifth, but could not complete the comeback.
