Having beaten Campolindo 8-6 earlier in the season, Menlo had the added difficulty of having to beat them again but this time without their leading scorer on the season who is out for the season due to injury.
The visiting Menlo Knights did just that, coming out and taking an early 6-2 lead midway through the second quarter.
“We are running a system that every player knows and does well,” said head coach Jack Bowen.
“Loosing any player hurts us, especially a leading scorer, but the good news is that we have an entire team who knows what to do and has a lot of heart. Beating a team of this caliber at this point in the season is great for us—we’re really peaking at the right time.”
Campolindo is anticipated to earn the number three seed in the NCS Section.
Menlo got goals from five different players, including a career-high four goals from junior Johnny Wilson. Junior goalie John Wilson made 16 saves including three that were “exceptionally tough” according to Bowen.
Menlo will finish their season at home on Halloween Day, honoring the seven seniors who will be playing in their final home game at Menlo.
