Salinas-Milpitas football

Friday's game
Salinas (2-1) at Milpitas (3-0), 7 p.m.
 The Trojans are scoring points at an alarming rate, averaging nearly as many points each game (41) as they have given up the entire year (44).
 Milpitas reached the Northern California Division I playoffs last year, with one of its wins being a 40-6 decision over Salinas. Two of its losses came to teams that went to state titles games.
 Protected by two 6-foot-8, 310-pound linemen, quarterback Tyree Bracy has thrown for 599 yards and nine touchdowns for Milpitas and has rushed for two touchdowns.
 Twin brother Tariq Bracy has 13 catches for 230 yards and three touchdowns, averaging nearly 18 yards a reception. He also has 175 yards on the ground.
 After rushing for two touchdowns in his first start two weeks ago, Salinas quarterback Brett Reade tossed three scoring strikes last week, two to Sunnie Arreola.
 Salinas has outscored its last two opponents 61-15. Cooper Smith leads the team in receptions with 12 for 183 yards, and has been a demon as a pass rusher with five sacks.
 Nearly half of the Cowboys points this year have come in the second quarter, outscoring teams 30-7. Ritchie Cerda has rushed for over 100 yards twice, and has 313 in three games
