Varsity Boys Soccer
Milpitas 3, Palo Alto 2
Date of competition: Friday, February 8, 2013
Palo Alto's hopes for a possible title in the SCVAL El Camino Division boys' soccer race disappeared in a 3-2 loss to visiting Milpitas on Friday. In a very close game, Milpitas (7-2-2) scored the final goal with 6:00 remaining to leapfrog past the Vikings (7-2-1) in the standings. Paly (12-5-2 overall) dropped out of sole possession of second place as it had a number of chances during the final few minutes but could not convert. Paly grabbed a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute on an unassisted goal by senior Chris Meredith. Milpitas equalized 23 minutes later. The Vikings grabbed a 2-1 lead in the 30th minute on an unassisted goal by Cina Vazir. In the second half, the Trojans scored in the fourth minute and again 30 minutes later.
