Atherton, Calif. -- The #9 ranked, Marymount California University Men's Soccer team traveled to Atherton as they faced the #22 Menlo College Oaks. It was expected to be a hard fought battle between the defending GSAC and Cal Pac champions and it was just that.
The Mariners spared no time to start their attack as they found the back of the net in the 4th minute off an unassisted goal by Josep Morego. MCU continued to dominate the half outshooting the Oaks 6 to 1.
Menlo would seek revenge in the second half by tying up the game in the 69th minute off a deflected shot taken from a free kick outside the penalty box. The Mariners would step it up a notch putting more pressure on the Oaks' defense. A foul was called outside the Menlo box and Guillermo Chinchilla placed a perfect cross into the box to Enrique Amador who would head the ball into the back of the net for the game winner in the 80th.
The win gives the Mariners their first win of the season, improving 1-2 while the Oaks fall to 1-2-1 on the season.
Marymount California will have a day off before traveling to Santa Clarita on Wednesday to take The Master's University for a 4pm kickoff.
