On a rainy day with moderate winds, Palo Alto fell back in the SCVAL De Anza Division boys soccer race with a 2-1 loss to host Mountain View on Friday. The Vikings (2-4-4, 6-7-5) started the scoring on a blocked shot from Cina Vazir, which was followed up by Rueben Kramer, who placed it over the Mt. View keeper up in the right hand corner. Kramer had two other near goals that were blocked by the Mt. View keeper. After that, Paly and Mt. View traded near scoring shots.

The second half turned with the wind. Paly was now going into the wind and playing mostly on their half with a few counter attacks. A game-changer occurred when a handball was called on a Paly defender away from the goal. Brad Bumgarner converted for the Spartans, making the score 1-1. An energized Mt. View pushed hard for the next five minutes with Paly keeper Tony Maharaj making several nice saves. Mt. View's second goal came after several corner kicks were cleared. The final corner led to two consecutive shots that were deflected away. The last deflection went to the top of the box and Logan Allen, a defender hit a powerful volley into the upper right corner to make the score 2-1.
