The Millennium High girls soccer team played through soggy weather Wednesday to claim a 1-0 win over Ben Holt Academy at the Tracy Learning Center.

The teams played a 0-0 draw until the 75th minute. Millennium junior Victoria Garza fired a shot at the Holt goalkeeper, who made the block, but Millennium senior Anneliese Bradley was in position to score on the follow-up shot.

The win put the Falcons in second place at 5-1 in the Central California Athletic Alliance behind first-place Venture Academy, which beat the Falcons 3-1 in Stockton on Friday.

Tracy 4, Franklin 1

Tracy High senior Daesha Brown and Kelly Brooks teamed up three times for goals in the Bulldogs’ victory at home against Franklin High of Stockton in the opening game of the San Joaquin Athletic Association Tuesday.

Brooks passed to Brown for a goal in the first half, and Tracy (8-2, 1-0 SJAA) went ahead 2-0 at the start of the second half when senior Cailie Chayrez scored on a pass from senior Dallyce Marglon. Tracy got two more goals when Brooks made free kicks to Brown, who scored.

Franklin (8-3-1, 0-1 SJAA) scored its goal late in the second half.

Kimball 6, Sonora 0

The Kimball High soccer team moved forward in the Valley Oak League with a win Tuesday at Sonora High.

The Jaguars (3-2, 2-1 VOL) scored right away on sophomore Samantha Tran’s shot off a cross from junior Abby Dyer. Tran scored another goal unassisted in the ninth minute, and Dyer scored unassisted in the 22nd minute. Junior Serina Mendiola scored in the 30th minute on a cross from junior Cynthia Soto, and Soto scored on a pass from sophomore Mia Drake to make it a 5-0 game at the half. Tran scored the last goal in the 66th minute on a pass from junior Eliana Mendoza.

The outcome dropped Sonora to 2-7, 1-3 in the VOL.

East Union 5, Kimball 1

The East Union Lancers stayed in control of Friday’s game at Kimball High’s Don Nicholson Stadium, taking a 3-0 lead in the first half.
