Junior Jesus Miranda scored both goals for the Santa Barbara High boys soccer team in a 2-2 draw with Buena in a Channel League match.

Miranda scored the first one in the 10th minute off a through ball from Walker Jensen. After Buena answered 30 seconds late on a penalty kick, Miranda made it a 2-1 game with a flick over the goalkeeper’s head.

Buena equalized in the 65th minute on a goalkeeper error.

“We controlled the game well and we had many opportunities to close the game, but we just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net,” said Santa Barbara coach Ricardo Alcaraz.

He praised the play of center-backs Juan Torres and freshman Pietro Nascente.

Santa Barbara is 1-1-2 on the season and 0-1-1 in league.
