WBAL soccer opener has a football edge as SHP boys win

 

Although the Sacred Heart Prep and Menlo School boys soccer teams were squaring off Wednesday afternoon, the contest looked more like a football game with the number of players that ended up sprawled out on the ground.

The referees kept their whistles silent for most of the contest, allowing the two rival teams to play a physical game in their first West Bay Athletic League matchup of the season.

Sacred Heart Prep performed well in the rough- and-tumble contest, scoring two second-half goals to defeat Menlo, 2-0. The Gators improved to 5-1-2 overall while the Knights fell to 2-4-1.
