A 1-0 win for a place in the NCS Quarter Finals!
In a intense first round game of NCS vs Kennedy-Richmond, the Dons won by the minimum with the lone goal scored by sophomore Dan Glascock at the half-hour mark. Acalanes had numerous opportunities to add a second goal but couldn’t find the net… At the other end, junior GK Jackson Foote was again on top of his game, making a couple of amazing saves to keep his team up.
The Dons now play their Quarter Final this Saturday, Feb 19,2011 (7pm) at home vs Pinole Valley, winner of  Dougherty Valley in the 1st round.
Go Dons!

FEB 7 – FEB 12, 2011
Another DFAL title for the Dons, tied at the top with Campo!
With a 8-1-3 record, the Dons are the Diablo Foothills Athletic League champions, a title they will share this year with Campo. This past week was a very special one for the 8 seniors in the team (Nick Bischoff, Cam Carda, Adrian Chow-Danel, Steve Glascock, David Helfrich, Sean McArthur, Max Omick and captain Nick Pereira) who were honored – as well as their parents – on Wednesday and played their last league game on Friday at Las Lomas (2-2). In this important game, Acalanes led 1-0 at the half (goal from Carda, at the reception of a nice free-kick from junior and captain Dylan Autran), then were caught by surprise in the first minute of the second half (1-1), took the lead again on a penalty kick by Autran (2-1) and finally conceded a second goal at the last minute of the game. The Dons will now focus on the NCS playoffs, where they are seeded #2 (Campo is #1) and will host Kennedy Richmond on Wednesday at 7pm. Go Dons!
