Behind goals from Jose Gomez and Bruno Castro, the Blue team upended the White squad 2-0 in the Blue/White Scrimmage on Sunday at Morrison Stadium in Omaha.
After a scoreless first half, Gomez got the Blue team on the board in the 56th minute. Fighting with two defenders along the right side of the net sophomore Eric Miller found Gomez open in front of the net. Miller’s pass allowed Gomez to beat keeper Jeff Gal to the left side for a 1-0 lead. Late in the game Castro added some insurance with a goal at the 88:56 mark. Sophomore Jose Ribas found Castro streaking up the seam of the field. The pass from Ribas hit Gomez in stride, allowing him to blast the goal into the back of the net.
