Milpitas High School football ended the season on a three-game winning streak with a 20-0 defeat of visiting, and previously unbeaten, Los Altos High School on Friday, Nov. 12.
Milpitas starting quarterback Tony Sauceda left the game with an injurt in the first quarter. After backup Brian Nguyen was ineffective throwing the football, the Trojans turned to Jordan Lockett, a wide receiver, to lead the team in a wildcat formation with five minutes left in the first half. Defensively, the Trojans shut down Los Altos, forcing punts on each of their first-half possessions.
Lockett got the Milpitas offense going once put in the quarterback position. After a 39-yard Lockett run got the Trojans in the red zone, Sammy Fanua capped off the drive with a six-yard TD run to give the hosts a 7-0 lead.
In the third, Lockett continued to move the ball and, on the Trojans second possession, he threw a 26-yard TD pass to give the Trojans a 14-0 lead. And in the fourth, Milpitas got its last score when Lemaki Musika intercepted a Los Altos pass and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown.
