Menlo boys join SHP, M-A and Menlo girls in CCS soccer quarterfinals

 

It was two matchups of No. 1 and 16-seeded teams, but only one was a surprise as the Menlo School boys and girls opened the Central Coast Section soccer playoffs with big victories on Wednesday.

In Atherton, the No. 1 Menlo girls took care of No. 16 King City, 7-0, as freshman Alexa Thomases scored three goals and junior Emily Demmon added two as the Knights improved to 11-2-6 and advanced to the Division II quarterfinals.

Menlo will host No. 9 Scotts Valley (10-6-3), a 1-0 winner over No. 8 Terra Nova, on Saturday at 1 p.m.
