“They intercepted a pass and Sarabia laid it off to Short and boom, it was over,” said Milford coach Frank Spurchise, whose team fought off 12 corner kicks by the Blue Devils (9-0). “They’re a very good team, as always. The bottom line is they’re a skilled team that passes very well and they know where each other is on the field.”

Victor Mendoza assisted Sarabia on the opening goal, a 10-yarder to the far post with 12 minutes left in the first half. Peyton Griffiths tied it for Milford (7-2, 6-1) with 1:30 to go before halftime, converting a pass from Eli Rutledge at close range.

“The second half was kind of back-and-forth at times,” Spurchise said. “They have a lot of players and it did work to their advantage because they wore us down a little bit. Having a bench like that, they were subbing in four to five guys at a time. That’s a huge benefit.

“They beat Davenport, so they’re the team to beat in our section,” he continued. “You’ve got to give them the edge.”

Marvin Morales made five saves for the Blue Devils, who held a 9-6 advantage in shots.

Max Lang stopped seven shots for the Wildcats.
