The Palo Alto boys’ soccer team didn’t lose in its match with host Milpitas on Tuesday, but the Vikings did lose their grip on first place in the SCVAL De Anza Division following a 1-1 deadlock with the Trojans. Paly fell into second place (3-1-2, 6-3-5) while Gunn moved into first after a 1-0 win over Los Altos.

Despite out-shooting Milpitas, 10 to 2, in the first half, Palo Alto walked off at halftime down 1-0. Paly had plenty of opportunities but, despite a combination of crosses from the end line and direct shots on goal, could not score in the first half.

Milpitas played a tough second half with a number of clears and several saves by the Milpitas keeper. With 13 minutes remaining, John Richardson sent another cross to the back post and Alex Freeman out-manuevered the Milpitas keeper for the tying score.
