Menlo strikes late to stay unbeaten in Cal Pac

 

A couple of seniors made sure Senior Day would be successful as the Menlo College men's soccer team produced a thrilling, 1-0, victory over visiting William Jessup on Saturday to remain unbeaten in Cal Pac Conference play.

Matheus Barbosa scored on a corner kick from Gunn High graduate Sam Zipperstein in the 67th minute for the Oaks (7-0, 10-3-1), who are unbeaten in their past nine games and have recorded shutouts in three of the past four.

"We came out kind of slow," Zipperstein said. "But sometimes you have to win ugly and I think that's what we did."

Menlo has three conference matches remaining, beginning with a trip to Pacific Union on Tuesday for a 3 p.m. start.

The Oaks outshot the Warriors, 24-4, including a 15-3 advantage on goal. William Jessup goalkeeper Tim Rusher made 10 saves in the first half to help keep the game scoreless.

"I was lucky to get the score," Barbosa said of his team-leading seventh goal. "At the end of the day we got the 'W' and that's what matters."

Zipperstein has a team-best seven assists.

Women's soccer

Junior Allison Hammond scored her seventh goal of the season, but Menlo dropped a 3-1 decision to Cal Pac Conference leader William Jessup on Saturday in its final home match.

The Oaks (2-3, 4-10-2) travel to Mills College for a match Wednesday.
