Six different players score in Menlo Colllege's men's soccer victory

 

The Menlo College men's soccer team returned home on Wednesday and spread the scoring wealth as six different players scored in a 6-0 victory over Simpson.

From the beginning, the Oaks were the aggressors, as they controlled the ball in their attacking third.

It would only take a little over nine minutes for Menlo to get on the board first after Ike Arinze shot one in the back of the net following a pass from Ryan Onizuka.

In the 34th minute, Franco Varga, a junior out of Switzerland, recorded his first goal in an Oaks uniform, taking a corner kick from Oscar Reyes and depositing it in the net.

The second half got off to a great start for Menlo as it scored two goals in a 16-second span.

The first came from Luis Nunez, who launched his second goal of the season into the net off a rebound opportunity created from Stephen Levy.

Seconds later, Eli Bunton created a turnover on defense, took the ball all the way down field and fired it past Red Hawks keeper Michael Jones.

Stephen Levy joined the party off an assist from Onizuka in the 71st minute and three minutes later, senior Jonny Ensch chipped in his first goal of the campaign off a deflected shot from Levy.

Senior keeper Nathan Bachand got the start for Menlo and was marvelous in the net when he was tested.

He only had to make a pair of saves on the afternoon, one off a free kick taken right in front of the net.

Bachand reacted to his right and swatted the ball away on a dive to ricochet it just past the post. That led to a corner kick for Simpson and the Oaks defense was able to stand tall and get the ball out of the defense zone without any threat.

Menlo (4-0) stays home to continue a three-game stand. Puget Sound visits Saturday for a 1 p.m. start. Menlo College Sports Network will carry the game live.
