A stingy defensive effort by the Menlo College defense kept it close, but a Biola penalty kick early in the second half and a late goal made all the difference in the Eagles' 2-0 win over the fifth-seeded Oaks on Thursday in the semifinals of the Golden State Athletic Conference tournament.

Menlo, which advanced to the semifinal by way of a thrilling 12-penalty kick thriller over The Master's College on Saturday, had its hands full all afternoon with the Biola attack.

The first half featured a pair of early scoring chances for the Eagles in the first three minutes that went to the wayside before the Oaks defense settled in and was tremendously stingy for the remainder of the period.

All-GSAC keeper Kaylin Swart had another great half, making a pair of saves to preserve the scoreless draw as the clock ticked to zero.

The Oaks finish 8-7-5 on the year.
