Girls soccer: Woodside defeats M-A, leads PAL Bay Division

 

The Menlo-Atherton girls began the day contending for a PAL Bay Division soccer title. As the sun was going down, however, so were the Bears' hopes as first-place Woodside pulled away for a 4-1 victory on Tuesday.

The Bears came into the first of two showdowns with the Wildcats tied for third place with Burlingame, trailing second-place Carlmont by just two points. M-A needed to pull an upset, however, to move closer to Woodside's 18 points.

That didn't happen, however, as the Bears fell to 3-2-2 (6-3-3) while the Wildcats improved to 7-0 and 11-1.

Woodside continues to lead the PAL Bay Division with 21 points with Carlmont in second with 16 and Burlingame third with 14. Menlo-Atherton, which is now just fighting for a Central Coast Section playoff berth, is fourth with 11 points heading into Thursday's showdown at Burlingame.
