Milpitas traveled to a very cold Santa Cruz Coast last Tuesday evening to take on Soquel High School. Martin Lopez got the Trojans on the board first when he slotted a goal after receiving a cross from Ramiro Ceja. However, Soquel tied it 1-1 shortly thereafter which was the halftime score. Second half saw the host go up 2-1 and forced Milpitas to play catch-up. As the visitors picked up the pace they found themselves taking shots that bounced off the goal posts. Finally, with less than two minutes to go, Ceja took a free kick from 25 yards out and curved it around the Soquel wall and into the next for a 2-2 tie and the final score. Both Trojan goalies, Zach Ebright and Alex Ramirez, played with each giving up one goal. Last Friday the young Milpitas team hosted a strong Mountain View High School team and fell 4-0. Next home game is a 3:15 p.m. encounter, Dec. 8 against Pioneer High School of San Jose.
