M-A girls keep their dream soccer season intact

 

The Menlo-Atherton girls kept their championship hopes alive in the Central Coast Section Division I soccer playoffs with a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over visiting Piedmont Hills in a quarterfinal match Saturday in Atherton.

The No. 1 seeded Bears improved to 14-4-2 while the eighth-seeded Pirates dropped to 8-7-7. Menlo-Atherton has now won six games in a row and have outscored opponents, 24-1, in the streak.

"Little bit of a survival feeling," said M-A head coach Jason Luce. "Any time you play these games the team are engaged, emotional and physical. This one was super physical, but we expected that. It's nice to see the girls be brave and stick up to that."
