Familiarity may breed contempt in some circles, but in the high school boys soccer rivalry between Channel Islands and Hueneme, all it breeds is respect.Alex Garcia put in a goal for Hueneme in the 39th minute of the second half Thursday night to earn his team a 1-1 draw with visiting Channel Islands in a routinely tight Pacific View League game.

The tie made the league standings just that much closer, putting Hueneme at 1-2-2 (5-2-3 overall) and Channel Islands at 2-1-2 (11-2-3 overall).

Garcia’s goal came 25 minutes after Ricardo Blancas had given Channel Islands a 1-0 lead.
