The Palo Alto boys opened their SCVAL De Anza Division soccer season with a 3-1 victory over host Los Altos on Wednesday. It was a closer game than the score suggested. Los Altos went on a strong offensive push early on but had one shot on goal. The game begin to turn Paly's way after about 15 minutes. Paly (1-0, 5-3-1) had several attempts but did not convert until Dami Bolarinwa took a ball down the left flank, crossed it to Fernando Rodriguez. Rodriguez quickly made a give and go pass to Roberto Sotelo and placed the ball into the lower left corner. Paly kept on the attack the rest of the first half and came up with a second goal when Cina Vazir hit a 25-yard shot off the cross bar that bounced toward Rodriguez, who beat one defender then placed a nice touch shot into the upper left corner. Los Altos came out strong and scored early into the second half. The Eagles pushed hard for about 10 minutes but Paly was able to slow down their game. The final goal came unexpectedly when midfielder Sid Srinivas placed a long arching ball over the Los Altos keeper, who was caught off his line. Paly hosts Santa Clara at 3:30 p.m. on Friday.
